New This Year

We are accepting applications for talks/workshops/demos as well as performances but they must directly relate to our theme…

Puppet Power: Celebration! seems fitting as we adapt post-COVID-19 and work towards an equitable, diverse, inclusive, accessible, anti-racist society.

Celebration sparks a variety of questions: How do we celebrate? What do we choose to celebrate? Who is celebrating and who is not? What about anti-celebration considerations? How has puppetry contributed to the ritual, cultural or commerce of celebration? How has puppetry helped define what celebration is?

Please be sure to clearly indicate how your talk, workshop, and/or performance fits our theme!

Only submissions clearly linked with the theme will be considered.

Deadline to apply is October 31, 2021.

Artists will be compensated for their talk/workshop/performance as well as travel (if applicable).
