Dear National Centres, Representatives and Councillors,

The UNIMA Cooperation Commission, which was created in 2008 to enable international solidarity in the field of puppet theatre, is asking for your support with a programme for emergency aid, which has now been set up in response to the Covid-19 crisis.

We offer emergency aid for puppeteers, including support for food supplies and for housing, to ensure that people do not lose their homes. It is aimed primarily at UNIMA members.

This programme will be managed jointly between UNIMA and its national centres. National centres are familiar with the situation in each country. Financial support will be transferred to puppeteers via the national centres. The Cooperation Commission asks you to familiarise yourself with the programme HERE.

In this spirit of shared responsibility, the Commission therefore asks you to:

  • share information about the emergency aid programme with your members and networks, as quickly as possible, so that puppeteers in difficulty will hear about it;
  • share the fundraising appeal for the emergency aid programme with your members and networks as quickly as possible, so that possible donors will be able to offer support.

You can contribute with: Paypal / Money Transfer / GoFundMe Platform / Chuffed

Information about this project can be found on the UNIMA Facebook page and on the UNIMA website.

Please send any queries to the Cooperation Commission via this email address:, or send a Whatsapp message directly to its president on this number: +34 674 77 93 16

UNIMA is counting on all of you to show the strength of solidarity during these difficult times and thanks you for your collaboration.

Best regards

For the UNIMA Commission for Cooperation

Pierre-Alain Rolle, President
