International Association
of Puppet Friendly Cities

AVIAMA is an association which gathers cities and local governments of the whole world around the puppet.

Introduced in 2010, this association, whose head office is in Charleville-Mézières, includes cities convinced of the importance of the culture in their development and of the necessity of promoting the arts of the puppet.

AVIAMA offers to the friendly cities to join a network of cooperation.
