Founded in 1984, Puppet Animation Scotland champions puppetry, animation and visual theatre both in Scotland and internationally. Puppet Animation Scotland is a Creative Scotland Regularly Funded Organisation. As well as our annual Puppet Animation Festival and manipulate Visual Theatre Festival Puppet Animation Scotland provides year-round workshops, networking opportunities, funding opportunities, practical advise, support and encouragement to all artists working with puppetry, visual theatre and animated film. We promote and celebrate these art forms as valued art forms integral to Scotland’s rich and diverse cultural life. We have an open-door policy and we are always eager to meet artists who have a passion for the art forms we champion.
