Puppets and Activism

Dragon Head

If you don’t have plans tonight, and would like to experience one of the places where activism and artistry merge, then I suggest you head over to the Sierra Club office in Manayunk. Michelle Posadas from Spiral Q Puppet Theater will be there talking about the history of puppets and activism. She will also help the folks from the Sierra Club plan a large puppet to use during their Earth Day events.

The event starts at 6:15 pm at 4100 Main Street, Suite 405 (just above the Grape Street Pub and next to the Manayunk Brewery). Call 215-508-3310 for more information.

The picture above is from a program that Spiral Q did with kids from North Philadelphia during the summer of 2005. I was working at a local university doing community service coordination in those days and since some of our students were helping out with their summer program, I got invited to the midafternoon parade. It was really a kick.

    I’m not going to be able to make it, but you should tell about it at the Activism Forums. Thanks!
