British Centre of Union Internationale de la Marionette

British Centre of Union Internationale de la Marionnette

UNIMA is an organisation bringing together people from around the world who contribute to the development of the Art of Puppetry. It aims to use this art in the pursuit of human values such as peace and mutual understanding among peoples, regardless of race, political or religious convictions, or differences in culture. UNIMA organises an international congress and festival once every four years, produces publications, disseminates scholarly and practical research, facilitates international exchanges, and much more besides.

The British Centre of UNIMA is a registered charity which supports the status of puppeteers and puppet theatre by raising public awareness of the value and importance of puppetry as an art form in its own right. It encourages improved standards of performance, and promotes the use of the art form in education, community programmes, and therapies.

We arrange an annual meeting of members, an annual lecture, and other occasional meetings and events, to take place at different locations throughout the country. Students and young people may join BrUNIMA at a considerably reduced rate which entitles them to receive an emailed copy of the publications, plus all the other benefits. Membership of BrUNIMA includes membership of the parent body.
