Unima South Africa
UNIMA SA is an arts and social development organization focused on the art of Puppetry.
UNIMA SA works both to develop puppetry arts within South Africa and to use puppetry to promote transformation and social development.
Puppetry is a unique medium, with the power to unite across cultural, language and social divides.
Our social development activities focus on promoting social cohesion in historically disadvantaged communities in South Africa. We work to encourage original creativity amongst children and youth. We encourage the creation of new productions that focus on promoting African identity and positive socio-cultural messaging.
As an umbrella organization, UNIMA SA unites and supports artists working with puppetry in many different contexts; encouraging imaginative and creative expression to foster mature relationships amongst people and encourage care for each other and our environment. More about Unima SA
