What is UNIMA?


UNIMA (Union Internationale de la Marionnette) is an international Non-Governmental Organisation bringing together people from around the world who contribute to the development of the art of puppetry, with the objective of using this art in the pursuit of human values such as peace and mutual understanding between peoples, regardless of race, political or religious convictions and differences in culture, in accordance with the respect of fundamental human rights, such as defined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights of the United Nations of December 10th, 1948.


The aim of UNIMA is to promote the art of puppetry. This aim can be achieved in the following ways: 

1) By encouraging contacts and exchanges between puppeteers from all nations and continents, using all possible means of communication;
2) By organising congresses, conferences, festivals, exhibitions and competitions, or by giving UNIMA endorsement;
3) By assisting members of the Organisation in assuring their democratic, union, financial and legal interests in the framework of their professional activities, notably through recommendations or proposals to the competent authorities;
4) By encouraging professional training;
5) By extending historical, theoretical and scientific research;
6) By keeping alive traditions, as well as encouraging the renewal of puppetry;
7) By proposing puppetry as a means for ethical and aesthetic education;
8) By participating in the work of international organisations with similar objectives.
