Australian puppeteer, Sue Wallace, has been awarded a Churchill Fellowship to research puppetry centres around the world, with the aim of establishing a National Puppet Centre in Sydney. Sue has been the director of Australia's only puppet festival in Blackheath, over the past seven years.
A National Puppet Centre will be some time in the making but with such public and professional enthusiasm it can become a reality. This extraordinary award from the Winston Churchill Memorial Trust is very gratefully acknowledged as a support to development of puppetry in Australia.
On behalf of all the puppet crazies out there, we wish Sue great success and we'll all support her efforts in getting a centre of puppetry arts established in Australia. And its about time too, hey Naomi?
