World Puppet Day 2023
Launched in 2003 by UNIMA, the World Puppetry Day is both a real tool for the promotion of puppetry arts and a project allowing to unite the puppet actors of the same territory. This world day seeks to promote the puppet arts by defending, among other objectives: the maintenance and the safeguard of the traditions and, in parallel, the renewal of the art of puppetry the use of puppetry as a means of ethical and aesthetic education.
The World Puppet Day is now celebrated all over the world through its National Centers and their members.This Day is the occasion to collectively and as widely as possible carry the diversity of puppetry arts today!
Every year since 2006, a personality from the artistic or cultural sector is solicited to write the World Puppet Day message. It is a question of putting forward the values that UNIMA carries and that are in this millenary art, to carry a message of cohesion and to shed light on this art.
