Help build a giant puppet

PEOPLE interested in being part of a giant puppet arts and cultural project on the Tablelands still have time to get involved.


A giant puppet has a bit of fun with shoppers recently at Atherton’s Silo Shopping Centre.

Melbourne artist Daniele Poidomani held a presentation recently to introduce the region to the project which involves making giant puppets and performing with them at community events later this year. 

Project producer Sara Isherwood said up to 20 people aged over 18 were needed for a puppet building workshop from 11-30 April, and six apprenticeship positions were available for training and performance between April and October. 

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 Sara Isherwood at giantsteps.fnq@gmail.com or call her on 0427 855 904.
