Puppets Parade in Calgary

The puppet parade just took place at the University of Calgary as part of the Puppet Power 2007 Con-
ference. Last night the great debate about the uses of the puppet as a agent for social change began. I was privileged to be invited to be opening speaker and gave a background on puppetry in social change in my life and specially showed a video clip of our recent Paper Playback Workshops taken in Europe. The debate taking place this afternoon is the role of art in political action - facilitated by
Colin Funk, the manager of the Banff Centre Leadership Learning Lab, in a little town west of Calgary, where we'll be doing a workshop next week. You can view our new Paper Playback video here!
