About Puppet: Power Festival of Ideas

Puppet Power: Festival of Ideas looks at the role inanimate objects have had in ceremonies and celebrations since time immemorial. We explore the impact and potential of Applied Puppetry in all sorts of practices. We wonder, who’s at the party, who’s not and whether it’s time to take back the carnival!

While designed for everyone, this will be of particular interest to educators, therapists, helping professionals, artists, students, thought leaders and idea generators.

More than just entertainment and information sharing… our Festival of Ideas is about making authentic connections, having meaningful conversations on important topics, and motivating a call to action to use the power of puppetry to impact positive social change.
