E17 Puppet Project
E17 Puppet Project (E17PP) harnesses the magic and power of puppetry to tackle complex subjects and makes them accessible to all audiences. The charity works with children for whom socioeconomic or personal circumstances might otherwise act as barriers to engaging in arts and community activity. Through puppetry, E17PP develops children’s confidence and social skills, as well as enhances their creativity and imagination, by focusing on three overlapping activities: puppet/theatre performances; puppetry, craft and drama workshops; and targeted projects, such as its hospital projects, which use puppets to help children better understand their own illnesses, educate their families, establish support networks, and overcome misconceptions. Funding from The Fore will support E17PP in increasing its reach and to develop new revenue streams, particularly through ‘charged for’ services.
