Build Better. Together.

Accountability with Your Puppet Community!


On Your Mark, Get Set...GOAL!


Do you have puppet project on your mind that needs some intensive time set aside for writing? Perhaps a dash of accountability? Connect with your National Capital Puppetry Guild to build community AND move your work forward. We gather together over a weekend for goal-setting, progress reports, breakout rooms, exchange of resources AND knowledge -- you name it! Be energized and stay connected to your puppetry community.


To keep things accessible, you can choose to make a donation in any amount that works for you OR register for free. We do this by the honor system and ask that you pay as you are able.  We value each donation, but we value our members ability to participate most of all!
