For the 4th consecutive year, the International Association of Puppet Friendly Cities launches a mobility aid scheme for projects in the field of puppetry arts. The deadline for sending applications is 14 January 2022. The results will be communicated on 15 April 2022.

Objectives of the grants

AVIAMA, which helps to create links between different countries, is particularly sensitive to the issue of mobility (travel and/or reception on site), the costs of which are often an obstacle to the realisation of projects.
The nature of the project(s) supported must concern the field of puppetry under different aspects (research, learning, discovery, participation in an event…) and take place in priority in one of the member cities, without excluding, however, other cities.

No age requirement but the Jury will be particularly attentive to requests from students or young professionals.
