The Puppet Slam Network

The Puppet Slam Network provides funding and support to the growing community of puppet slams all over North America.


What is a puppet slam? It is an evening of curated short-form puppetry acts intended for adult audiences.


The Puppet Slam Network, spearheaded by IBEX Puppetry and Heather Henson in 2005, fosters growth and diversity in puppetry through grant opportunities and community building.


The Puppet Slam Grant

The Puppet Slam Network Grant provides puppet slam curators with financial backing to produce a puppet slam in their city. The grant supports not just the producing of the show but the puppetry artists in their community.
