Our mission is to bring transformational joy to all humans through the art of improvisational theater, comedic performance and innovative storytelling.
Good Medicine is committed to do all we can to help others find their joy in ALL communities around us.
We at Good Medicine have committed to a plan of action for anti-racism in our work, our communities and our homes. We also recognize that allyship goes way beyond laughter and joy, and while that is our mission, we are also committed to being part of the change we seek in the world. The entire ensemble and staff are listening, educating, and acting upon the changes required to truly be anti-racist.
What does that mean for us? Along with our partners in the North American Federation of Healthcare Clowning Organizations, we have already launched an ongoing forum for educating our performers on how we can understand and implement authentic allyship into our daily work as healthcare clowns. This forum will include discussion of reading materials as well as training and workshops.
We are committed to more actively recruiting BIPOC performers. We recognize that recruiting people of color to our work goes beyond posting an audition notice. We plan to expand our recruitment to include workshops in communities that will allow us to reach BIPOC’s with the magic of the work we do and inspire people about this special work in pediatrics and senior care.
Most importantly, we refuse to allow these issues to fade into the background. Every day that we stand in front of an audience, whether it is one person or two thousand, virtually or live, we will be mindful and intentional about walking the walk and talking the talk of anti-racism.
