The City of Saguenay, located in Quebec, Canada, was supposed to host the 10th Annual General Assembly in the framework of the Festival International des Arts de la Marionnette (FIAMS). Due to the pandemic context which is still going on, we have been forced to cancel (reception in Saguenay postponed to 2023).
In the meantime the 2021 General Assembly of AVIAMA will be held on September 19 in Charleville-Mézières within the framework of the World Festival of Puppet Theatres (FMTM).
We are inaugurating yet another new way of meeting, as some of our members will be present and others connected remotely. The General Assembly is the occasion to reaffirm the orientations of the AVIAMA concerning the mobility of the artists and the international cooperation of the local decision-makers around the puppet arts. It is open to cities around the world that wish to join this space of exchange, resources and projects, to present their candidacy. This year, the GA will welcome the City of Dives sur mer (France), candidate in 2021.
It will also be the occasion to launch the AVIAMA International Award for Initiative during a press conference on 20 September, open to everyone (75 Forest Avenue, Charleville-Mézières, from 10am to 12am).
