As part of the International Children's Theater Festival in Subotica, and organized by the Festival and Theater Museum of Vojvodina, from September 20 to 22 will be held a three-day puppet therapy workshop By Puppet to Peace - puppetry in therapy and assessment. The workshop is led by Ossa Viklund, a long-time practitioner and educator in the field, from Gothenburg.
Participation in the workshop is free, and the number of participants is limited to ten. The work will be conducted in English.
The realization of the workshop was made possible by means of the Ministry of Culture and Information of the Republic of Serbia.
The workshop will take you on a spectacular journey through the procedure of puppet therapy as a mean to achieve inner and outer peace, that is, as a mean against any kind of violence. It will inspire you to use different types of puppets and simple materials. The process itself involves acquiring basic knowledge about puppetry techniques, making puppets, history of puppet therapy, therapy methods, benefits of certain types of puppet manipulation and puppet functions. You will learn why and in which cases to use puppets in assessment, as well as examples of practice in this area. We are looking forward to your participation.Back to...
