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.

Its objectives

Share the universal character of the arts of the puppet by training a space of exchanges between the member cities and the professionals of the culture

Make arts of the puppet a factor of development, by offering a space of resources to help in the implementation of local and international projects

Promote the role of the local decision-makers in the realization of bilateral or multilateral cultural projects of cooperation to support the arts of the puppet
