The mission of Puppet Animation Scotland is to champion, develop and present brilliant visual theatre, puppetry and animated film in Scotland and internationally.
All of our work is focused around artforms which breathe life into the inanimate or tell stories using primarily images rather than text. In this Age of Information whereby we consume and generate more words daily than ever before, we believe in the value of exploring and sharing ideas in a visual way, awakening other parts of the brain and unlocking creative thinking. Giving life to the inanimate allows us to discover the latent magic in the everyday and enable play at all stages of our lives.
Whether in an urban arts centre, a rural community centre, on a windswept hillside, in a town square or at an international festival, our goal is to enrich the lives of people in Scotland through these artforms, and to support and enable artists to tell the stories they want to tell.
