For our upcoming conference, Puppet Power 2016: Connecting Generations (May 27-29), we ask the question: “How have you used puppets (or a related genre) to connect, celebrate or build community between generations?”
Our Puppet Portfolios Series will help us to bridge conference subjects and speakers, discover the endless ways in which we can use puppets as part of creative expression and as a platform to generate thought-provoking conversations surrounding controversial and significant social issues. Puppet Portfolios brings together speakers from around the world to deliver fast paced, concise presentations on variety of diverse and complex subjects. Accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation or video, speakers are given eight minutes to deliver a talk expanding on the conference theme. Speakers can present live or send in a video. We are pleased to include Calgary’s Mark Hopkins (Swallow-A-Bicycle, We Should Know Each Other, High Performance Rodeo) as a juror and event host for Puppet Portfolios 2016.
Submission Deadline: December 1, 2015
