City of Calgary Proclaims today World Puppetry Day!
Mayor Nenshi, Telly, and Martin Robinson from one of our past Puppet Power Conferences

The City of Calgary has joined with other cities around the globe to proclaim and celebrate World Puppetry Day, March 21 st.  Mayor Naheed Nenshi signed the proclamation that cites World Puppetry Day as a day to "spark curiosity, promote understanding about the world we live in and inspire audiences to embrace the art of puppetry."

First celebrated internationally in 2003, this year's World Puppetry Day is marked by Calgary's own WP Puppet Theatre's full announcement of its unique, upcoming conference on Applied Puppetry,  Puppet Power 2018. And, adding yet more excitement to a day designated to celebrate manipulating artsy inanimate objects to tell stories, WP Puppet Theatre has also released a video featuring a motley group of puppet activists stating their case for increased recognition and respect.
