Festival of animated objects – Stories that tie us together
As an artform, puppetry is the great equalizer.
Breathing life into the inanimate is a foundational act of creation which allows us to connect us in a visceral way that crosses cultures and identities. It tells the stories that tie us together.
Through presenting, sharing, and amplifying these stories, the Festival of Animated Objects bring Calgary together and fills our communities with life, whimsy and all things puppets: from live theatre, to film, to gallery exhibits, workshops and more.
Each festival, the best of the local, national and international puppet world inhabit our city, and bring with them all manner of wondrous worlds, curious creatures, magical beasts, and fantastical gadgets bound to provoke, inspire and delight our collective imagination.
