Festival of Ideas
November 24 @ 1:00 am - November 25 @ 10:00 pm MST
Festival of Ideas showcases Puppet Power for social change.
For 2023 we ask, how do puppets, ‘metaphors of matter’ help address our Material World.
Festival of Ideas takes place In-person at C-Space, Calgary, AB
& Online Live Streamed
Our Festival of Ideas uses the power of puppetry to explore and impact the social issues of our time. Certainly, a current 21st century issue is our human relationship with Stuff. Things. Assemblage. Collections. Fabrication. Pollution. Consumerism. Excess. Desperate need. Some in the world have too much stuff and fight a battle of ‘downsizing’, disposal, recycling and deconstruction. Others have nothing but the items in the plastic bag they carry.
Relevant and useable, for educators, therapists, helping professionals, artists, students,
thought leaders and idea generators.
The event aims to:
- facilitate authentic connections, with meaningful conversations on important topics,
- provide encouragement and training in puppetry techniques
- motivate a call to action to use the power of puppetry to impact positive social change.
