Call for Submissions (Calgary): CAMP : Creative Puppet Fund

 

THE PUPPET CREATIVE FUND
TRAVELING WONDERS CALL OUT

To the puppet makers,

We at The Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry (CAMP) are ecstatic to announce The Puppet Creative Fund, which seeks to assist the continuous development and nurturing of professional puppeteers in Calgary. We aspire to see more puppetry around town by providing practitioners with micro-grants to build new ideas. Our first search is for puppet makers that desire to create a traveling show. A portable show. A puppet idea that can pop up in flexible environments like at markets, in lobbies, on sidewalks, or in corners of festivals. Shows can be created out of suitcases, in old radios, from wagons or out of something entirely ridiculous. Presentations could be created around a one on one experience or to small gatherings of people – The important part, is mobile.

WHAT CAMP WILL PROVIDE

We will be accepting up to 4 interested puppeteers. We will provide each person with $500 to build their idea. They will have the support of CAMP staff for creative idea development and puppet troubleshooting needs.

All projects are required to be performed during The Festival Of Animated Objects (March 13th – 17th 2019) with an additional $100 performance fee and all access festival pass, times and frequency to be coordinated with that organization
