Based in New Delhi, India. What started in 1998 as a small but very enthusiastic group of puppeteers was registered as the Katkatha Puppet Arts Trust in 2006. Serving these 12 years the organization has acquired 14 major productions which have toured in India and abroad.
At the heart of Katkatha remains one vision- to promote puppet theatre by exploring its various forms, pushing its boundaries and by popularizing it among audiences and bringing more people into this art form. To fulfill this vision Katkatha has had to play many roles. The most visible role is that of a travelling Puppet Theatre which performs all over the country and world.
Shiny Kids is a single day or multiple day family and childrens based traveling festival that will take care of your family and childrens entertainment needs. Whether you are a pre-existing festival with a family or childrens zone that you require entertainment for or simply a community group or city that would like to organize a community event, Shiny Kids is the answer.
We are a group of childrens entertainers who understand the needs of your family and child audience. Basically, if you book Shiny Kids, you dont have to worry or think about your family and/or childrens entertainment requirements. We will show up and take care of it all. Shiny Kids is specifically designed to keep families and kids entertained throughout the day with live musical and theatrical performances, interactive storytelling, puppetry, roving costumed characters, facepainting, interactive workshops, crafting as well as a giant inflatable Eco-Maze and Rainbow Dome that children and parents can enter for storytelling, music, and puppetry.
So, if you have a family or childrens zone at your festival, think no more on it. Shiny Kids provides all of the entertainment and scheduling that you would normally have to organize on your own. So, not only are you being provided with festival entertainment, but entertainment production and coordination as well.
The Dusty Flowerpot is a collaborative project, now in its fourth year, staging immersive theatrical celebrations to sold out audiences in East Vancouver.

Founded on traditional Squamish territory north of Gibsons, BC. The Art Farm is a growing movement of people who believe creativity grounded by nature leads to powerful change in their lives ad communities.
Inspired by the Ashrams and Monasteries of India and Thailand we have a 105 acre piece of land in Northern BC, 100 km north of Terrace, in the beautiful Nass Valley. We are intending to have this centre as a support for both beginner and advanced practitioners, and will host yogic intensives, healing workshops, alternative workshops, and meditation retreats. This centre will also be open to a number of like-minded individuals who are wishing for live-in community support.
Fantastic Space Enterprises is a private studio where the focus of the work is on developing high levels of performance awareness and an increased freedom with creative expression through self liberation and self realization. All the exercises are designed to increase our ability to flow with our inspiration with increased articulation and consciousness; physically, emotionally, and psychologically. All the work encourages the development of primary life skills that nurture our creative awareness and the ability to embody our intuition in a consciously expressive and functional way that benefits both our personal and professional life.
We are the Community Arts Council of Vancouver (CACV). Advocating for the arts community in this city has been our focus since 1946. Yes, that long! Weve seen the development of the Vancouver Playhouse, the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and the Downtown Eastside Community Arts Network to name a few.
We also focus on bringing communities together through artist-led collaborations that open barriers to understanding. A lot can happen when we realize how much we all have in common. The Community Arts Council of Vancouver offers a place for local artists to connect, for community members to have a voice and for the seeds of change to take root.
Join us as a member, as a volunteer, on our network and at our live events!
