Union Internationale de la Marionnette

Non-Governmental Organization affiliated to UNESCO


Greetings to all!

UNIMA International hosts and supports many initiatives, some of the more recent ones being, “Women, Life, Freedom” and “Tomorrow’s Puppetry in Africa”. If you are passionate about these or other projects, UNIMA’s Executive Committee calls all members and interested puppeteers to the next series of open sessions to explore how this union of puppeteers and lovers of puppetry can work together to elevate the impact of UNIMA’s mission.

That said, it has come to the Executive Committee’s attention that some members are concerned they were not notified about meetings held in May 2022. These meetings were arranged by passionate members (not the Executive Committee and UNIMA’s staff) and were not official councillor meetings. While we applaud the drive to improve our organization by all members, please note for the future that the name “councillor meetings” should be reserved for official calls for voting members to attend. This is very important for us to stay in full adherence with UNIMA’s bylaws and to ensure we remain open to all.

Please note that the upcoming open sessions are also not official Council meetings but instead open forums for discussion. The Executive Committee remains committed to notifying national centres, councillors and other at large members of any and all meetings organized by the Executive Committee.

If you have any concerns that the office may not have your updated information, please send that information to us at info@unima.org.

That noted, the Executive Committee encourages all who are able to join the upcoming “open session” discussions to do so. We hope to see you there!
