The NCPG is dedicated to sharing and promoting the Puppet Arts with the greater National Capital Area through workshops, performances, and special events. We partner beginners with experts in the spirit of collaboration, communication, and community.
We believe that puppetry fosters imagination and education while telling the story of our human experience, and we are committed to supporting the growth of artists with inclusivity and equity for all.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has forced huge swaths of the performance and education industry to pivot away from in-person events and towards virtual connections, but our guild as it now exists today was actually born in this virtual world. Organizations are searching for ways to include virtual elements as they return to in-person events, but our guild will be fighting the opposite battle- how do we add in-person elements to our virtual events without sacrificing that metric for inclusivity and engagement? With members joining from around the globe, we’re passionate about remaining accessible to everyone interested in connecting through the art of puppetry, regardless of geographic location or financial situation.
The NCPG is a vibrant community, and you are each what makes that ring as true."
