As you know, on March 21st, we are celebrating the World Puppetry Day. Created in 2003, this Day celebrates the puppetry art in the world. On this occasion, a personality of the artistic world is solicited to write a message spread all over the world.

In 2017, it was an American, Nancy Staub, who wrotes a strong message in which she stressed the importance of the internet to spread a better knowledge of this ancestral art which knows however to be in a great modernity.

We invite you to celebrate this Day by popularizing the event in many ways: by spreading the Message and by raising actions that help us to better publicize our art.
