To encourage children and adults to invest in their imagination and share in believable alternative worlds and experiences provided through the medium of puppet theatre. In doing so, we hope that they will extend their ability to imagine new futures, new problems and solutions – a world beyond their street corner. We hope to challenge limiting beliefs, offer new perspectives and explore ways for children to express their developing view of human experience in a stimulating and supportive environment.
In three years time we will have created a new audience for puppetry around the banks of the Tyne and beyond. We will have raised the profile of puppetry in the North East; developed links with schools and organisations to set up a regular touring circuit; established a reputation for innovative work and drawn together an enthusiastic team of artists / performers to develop projects.
We also envision having involved thousands of children and families in shows and creative projects, stimulating their imaginations, raising their aspirations and empowering them to make creative choices.
