The Modern Jesters project has been developed by Sean McCusker at the University of Northumbria at Newcastle in the North-East of England. It is supported by the Imagination Lab Foundation.

Modern Jesters introduces the idea of clowning and the embodiment of the ‘clown spirit’ as an organisational process, as a means to instigate reflection on existing practices and promote creative thinking and innovation and to create working environments which can embrace change and transformation. It will seek to develop methods which disturb the antecedent conditions of groupthink and organisational inertia and disrupt the structures and process which occur as a result.
