|Aim||self-reflection on how to deal with one's own fear around killer clowns|
|Duration||1 - 2 hours|
|Number of participants||for groups|
|Conditions||Again and again children and young people are very afraid of clowns. This fear often arises around Halloween, when corresponding movies are released (e.g. "IT") or when corresponding chain letters are circulated on social networks. If fear of clowns becomes an issue, i.e. children's everyday life is negatively affected, nightmares, insomnia, etc., this phenomenon of fear should be taken up and discussed. Otherwise, do not take up, as no fears should be stirred up.|
|Material||The phenomenon of anxiety should be dealt with artistically, i.e. posters, colours, equipment for video design etc. are needed.|
Prepare the research on the phenomenon "killer clown" to see which disturbing contents can be found by children and young people. If such content is found, the search should be restricted to selected links.
Prepare the artistic processing according to the existing fears of the group. The fear should be worked off by means of poster design. In principle, however, any design means can be used (e.g. video shooting).
The phenomenon of (killer) clowns is presented artistically and analysed together. Why does a clown scare you at all?
Key questions for the discussion:
Alternatives: Every horror figure can be treated equally when it becomes an issue.
