March 2022: The People’s Puppet Project with the East African Women’s Foundation youth group in Braybrook has been a huge success! Over three months a giant puppet show based on a Somali folktale of Deghdeer was created. The show stars five new giant puppets, with bilingual storytelling and traditional songs performed by local Somali elders.
ABC TV’s Art Works filmed a story on the project to be aired on:
ABC TV Plus, 8pm Wednesday 27 April.

The show will be performed again at Brimbrank’s Be Bold festival on 8 & 9 October 2022.
