Giant puppet project heads to region

MELBOURNE artist Daniele Poidomani will be making his way to the Atherton Tablelands this weekend to host a unique and artistic presentation, showing off the wonders of cultural giant puppet art.

Giant Steps Far North Queensland is a community-based, giant puppet arts and cultural project and will be introduced to the Tablelands region at the Atherton Performing Arts centre inn Silo Road from 3pm-5pm on Saturday 15 January. 

Mr Poidomani said the free session would act as a precursor to finding people who want to be part of the program which aims to teach people how to make giant puppets and then have them participate in performances at local community events such as the Tablelands Folk Festival. 

“This session will introduce people to the program, with a view to making the giant puppets in April,” he said. 

The project is being funded by the Federal Government’s Restart Investment to Sustain and Expand Fund, Tablelands Regional Council and is in partnership with Atherton Performing Arts and Tablelands Folk Festival. 

Inquiries about the program can be emailed to project producer, Sara Isherwood at or phone on 0427 855 904.
