For us, it’s essential to maintain the training of puppeteers as an effective way to preserve an important patrimony, because the artists’ interest in puppetry is growing and the need for high quality professional training is growing with it. In that respect, significant training programs worldwide must be maintained and protected.
So, when a program of excellence, such as the Turku program, in Finland, faces problems, the Profesionnal Training Commission of UNIMA has to express its concern.
We invites you to read the letter that its members just wrote and signed in order to strongly support the continuation and growth of this prestigious program.
