Dear friends of the National Centers, International Councillors, Representatives, members of the UNIMA:

From the Heritage, Museums and Documentation Centers Commission, we have set ourselves the main objective of protecting and disseminating the important puppet heritage that our community has throughout the world.  The first thing we have to do is to KNOW ourselves what we have and for this, your collaboration is essential, which we are requesting from here.

We realize two forms, which we’ll appreciate if you return us – as many as you need – duly completed.  These forms will help us to make a REAL and complete inventory of the richness of the world’s puppeteer heritage, to know its situation and to act accordingly.

Any doubt you may have,  we are at your disposal to clarify it, both me as president of the Commission, and any of the members that compose it.

 We look forward to your precious help.

 Thanks a lot!!!!

The forms:
