A Message from the NCPG Concerning the Murder of George Floyd and Continuing Unrest
The National Capital Puppetry Guild (NCPG) is deeply saddened by the tragic murder of George Floyd captured on video, illuminating the social injustices and systemic racism that have plagued our country for over four hundred years. As peaceful protestors are voicing their anguish and deep frustration with the inherent injustices that continue to exist, NCPG is standing in support of our African American brothers and sisters in the puppet community and around the world during these unprecedented times.
As we move forward in solidarity, NCPG will continue to educate and inspire through the art of puppetry. NCPG is dedicated to sharing and promoting Puppet Arts with the greater National Capital Area through workshops, performances, and special events, partnering beginners with experts in the spirit of collaboration, communication, and community. Our puppetry which does not sanction or perpetuate racism or racial violence fosters imagination and education while telling the story of our human experience.
