Puppet Pop Up at Chinook Blast Festival

Puppet PopUp Chinook Blast

FREE Puppet PopUp Chinook Blast Festival. Children & adults craft a paper mask-body puppet facsimile of intrepid Calgary winter birds. Like the Chickadee, Magpie, Flicker and Gray jay, Celebrating staying warm with feathers and community.

This Pop Up is inspired by The Gray Jay and the Magpie by Ken Lee, a puppet project and a video link to 150 people retelling the story with puppets. The project  created a community video of a modern-day story about Canada’s new
(unofficial) avian emblem – the Gray Jay. We invited over one hundred and fifty, local, national and international participants of all ages, and their unique hand-crafted puppets, to read and film the story, one line at a time!

This Drop by Pop Up will include

  • Puppet making of a Winter Bird puppet.
  • Copy of the story, The Gray Jay and The Magpie by Ken Lee
  • Link to YouTube videos of puppet performances for all 10 chapters of the story

Suitable for children, ages 5 and up, but all are welcome. All tools and supplies will be provided.
