Friday, October 26 is the 5th Annual #ArtsMatterDay and we’re excited to join this online celebration of arts, culture, and creative expression.

Each October for the past four years, the creative community has taken social media by storm to celebrate #ArtsMatterDay. By sharing hundreds of pictures and videos – and of course, art – we’ve shown why arts matter to us. This year, Puppet Showplace is celebrating how #ArtsMatter to us by looking at all the ways that puppetry builds connections in our minds, bodies, hearts, and in our community!

Puppet Showplace believes in the power of art, puppetry, and live performance to unite communities and build connections throughout Boston and around the world. In the last year, Puppet Showplace has brought puppetry performances, workshops, and outreach activities to schools, camps, and community centers throughout the Greater Boston area. We have also built connections with the international community by presenting touring performances by puppeteers from Italy and Wales. Here in Brookline, audiences build connections by experiencing our handcrafted and heartfelt shows with generations of family and friends every single week!
