UNIMA Australia

Union Internationale de la Marionnette, (UNIMA), is an international organisation bringing together people from around the world to contribute to the development of the art of puppetry, and to use it in the pursuit of human values such as peace and mutual understanding between peoples. In 2004 UNIMA celebrated its 75th anniversary, making it the oldest theatrical association in the world!

The Australian Unima Centre was founded in 1970 and incorporated in 2004.

Their site is intended to provide a resource for members of UNIMA Australia and for people they hope will become members.
