COMPANIES, PROJECTS AND PEOPLE THAT I WORK WITH
Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry
The Canadian Academy of Mask and Puppetry (CAMP) is an organization that is bound to the advancement of education concerning the creation and performance of mask and puppetry related art.
We foster the emerging and next generation of theatre creators whose main interest is in the innovation of this craft, and also to provide mentorship to professional artists of all medias who wish to expand their practice of artistic expression.
CAMP is dedicated to the greater community and strives to deliver these forms to people of all ages, and to inspire an active, engaged and appreciative energy toward these pursuits.
CAART & BINDIVER
CAART was founded by a group of friends who wanted to provide a platform for artists to express any representation of creativity.
We encourage the creative visions which intermingle art, agriculture and environment through musical initiatives, creative writing, poetry, performance, visual arts, permaculture, zeroscaping and more.
We strive to facilitate respite, inspiration, and focus derived from the land, atmosphere, community, process and material.
Located just outside of Calgary AB, BinDiver is on a mission to create new possibilities for your discarded materials.
Our community-based approach to material recovery is helping support artistic and educational programming while creating a dialog around material culture, creative expression, and its relationship to the environment.

FESTIVAL OF ANIAMTED OBJECTS
Animated Objects… also, more widely know as Puppets, are the great equalizer. They arouse our curiosity and suspend our judgement. They open our minds and allow us to see things from a different perspectives.
Breathing life into the inanimate and giving expression to the inert the Festival of Animated Objects brings world-class artists to engage and entertain audiences of all ages; arousing our collective imaginations and opening us up to new worlds and new ideas through the innovative and sophisticated art of storytelling through mask, puppetry and animated objects.
From puppet shows to film screenings, gallery exhibitions to workshops, for 5-days and nights Calgary comes alive with original creations, mythical creatures, and curious beasts, objects and gadgets, and thingamajigs beguiled by puppet-masters and artists alike to stir your imagination.
