WP Puppet Theatre’s puppetry based workshops and residencies present a wide range of opportunities to link to both specific learning objectives and to 21st century learning skills. Our goal is to support classroom learning, inspire students to be creators, performers and makers and be a resource for both teachers and students.
VIEW from the Inside workshops encourage discussion about mental wellness. Through the creation, exhibition and performance of a self-reflective mask-body puppet, participants develop community, foster resiliency and gain a voice for their stories.
Our Puppet Power Conference is a biennial “Festival of Ideas” exploring the power of puppetry to impact positive social change. Master puppeteers from around the world present inspiring talks and practical how-to workshops. Panelists discuss intriguing ideas; peers mentor peers and a community is created that calls for action on a different social issue theme each year.
