Puppetry is going to play a big role in this year’s Dragon*Con!
Dragon*Con (for those who aren’t familiar) is one of the largest and most exciting genre conventions in the world and is held annual in Atlanta, Georgia over the Labor Day weekend. After experimenting with some puppetry content last year, the convention has decided to go all-in on puppets this year with a full blown puppetry track. This means they need 30+ hours of puppetry programming and the organizers want puppeteers and puppetry fans alike to get involved.
Dragon*con is currently accepting proposals for all elements of programming, including workshops, lectures, live performances (for kids as well as adults), fan panels, a puppet slam and just about anything else puppet related that you can think of. They’re also accepting volunteers to act as Puppetry Track Staff who will assist performers and guests. If you would like to learn more or get involved email Beau Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Dragon*con 2012 takes place Agust 31st through September 3rd in Atlanta, Georgia. Keep an eye on puppetry.dragoncon.org for upcoming annoucements.
