Dear Friends of Puppetry!
Over 40 people from near and far attended this years conference in Olympia, Washington. This gathering of puppeteers was meant to link to the East Coast puppetry conferences which have been led by Janene Ping and others. It has long been a dream of Janene’s to have West Coast gatherings alternating with East Coast gatherings. Janene had been working with us in imagining and planning the conference and joined us as a presenter and participant in the conference.
Please contact me with questions or if you are interested in puppetry, storytelling and the future of this important work in our time!
With warm greetings,
