Are you interested in puppetry? Imagine seeing  puppet shows you have read about on the web, in magazines and books. All that creativity, knowledge, information and history suddenly becomes real. Puppeteers of all kinds, from all disciplines, from all over the country and beyond gather for performances, workshops, shared inspiration and friendship. The most eclectic, focused, energizing  puppetry meetup you can conceive.  That’s a puppet festival.

Meet people who do what you do, love what you love. Meet people who get you, and your passion for puppetry. Puppet festivals are inspiration and imagination  brought to life.  Creativity is shared. Bonds are made, and friendships forged that will last beyond the festival.  You will be changed, and your puppetry will grow.

“Teaching artists are professional artists who have also developed the ability as educators to effectively draw people into the arts and artistic engagement. Teaching artists are relied on in organizations including schools, arts institutions, senior centers, juvenile justice and corporate programs, to engage audiences and incite active arts participation. The teaching artist field has rapidly grown in the last two decades as their skills become progressively more important in a world where creativity is increasingly associated with productivity.”
– David Marshall, Massachusetts Cultural Council.

“Puppetry in therapy is an important aspect of the power of the puppet and an area that is growing nationally and internationally. It is important for us to explore how puppets can be used in a variety of ways in expressive therapy.”
– Judith O’Hare, Education Consultant, Puppeteers of America

The Professional Day for Teaching Artists and Therapists is Professional Development for puppeteers, educators and therapists who would like to be more effective while working in educational and therapeutic settings.
