Dear Members of The Atlantic Canada Puppetry Association/
Association des marionnettistes du Canada atlantique
It’s time to take on the challenge of promoting our membership as an active division of UNIMA-CANADA. Our next step will to launch our bi-monthly Journal, with the objective of sharing news and views pertinent to the art of puppetry in our region.
To make our project relevant, we need your input, and have set our first submissions deadline for June 19, 2015. Here’s what we’d welcome:
1) A brief and breezy few paragraphs (maximum 250 words) outlining your projected activities over the summer months, including performance and workshops if relevant.
2) Above all, please send us an image of your work, so that our JOURNAL can be prefaced with a rotating gallery.
3) Submit your information in the language of your choice (i.e. English or French). No need to translate.
Our Journal will be overseen by two generous volunteers – Jason Tucker (Mermaid Theatre’s Office and Tour coordinator) and Tara Manuel (our board member from NL). Tara will be contacting individuals in the near future, with the intent of ultimately creating an archive of members’ profiles.
To forward your contributions, please email Jason:
Thanks! We look forward to hearing from you.
