A puppet rises from a fabric heap on stage, animated by a power beyond itself,
and it wonders—who is pulling my strings? What happens if I cut them? Am I my own puppet?

As a metaphor for human experience the puppet provides a fun yet impactful way of exploring life’s big questions. Our puppet presenters from around the world, will discuss their work relating to some of the existential considerations of our time: Climate Action, Artificial Intelligence, Culture & Identity, Hope & Human Agency.

This “Festival of Ideas” will help people discover a new way to impact change in the world by using puppetry. The conference presents key learnings and tools vital to professionals in education and healthcare, therapists, and visual and performing artists.

Join Us! - it’s is for anyone inspired to express themselves creatively, develop personal and professional skills and promote positive social change. It will completely spark your imagination!
