INSPIRE, INFORM and GALVINIZE

Puppets are for everyone. They can make you laugh. They can make you cry. They can open our eyes to the world in new ways. They bring joy, creative outlet and help us tackle emotional and social issues. Puppets can create meaningful bonds within families and groups of people through the breadth of expression they provide and through the collaboration required to construct them. They also play a broad role in contemporary society, providing a creative platform to express controversial and significant social issues.

VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Puppet Power 2016 conference planning has begun! Are you interested in social issues, both global and local, the power of arts, meeting inspiring people, puppetry, and accomplishing something unique and fun? We invite you to join our team.

This unique and inspiring conference examines 'applied puppetry' in the areas of therapy, multiculturalism, diversity, literacy, and social action. In the past, it has featured speakers such as puppet master Martin Robinson from Sesame International. It has also provided peer mentoring, panel discussions, networking, and hands on training in the art of puppetry. Puppet Power attracts participants from all areas of the helping professions, as well as educators, artists, activists and students and from all over the world.

Our theme should be finalized by summer and then we will dig into the detailed planning and program selection. We are now looking for additional committee members, planners and thinkers to help build the conference to be a fantastic, valuable and meaningful event.
