Emma starts back as Limericks puppeteer in residence as part of the Puppet Portals second residence which starts up next wednesday with 5 puppeteers across the country working for 10 weeks. The project aims to help counter the isolation that children can feel when they are hospitalized by connecting them to a wider community in a shared creative conversation. It aims to facilitate children in accessing their own creativity and using this resource to help them better cope with being in hospital. The project offers artists the chance to share ideas and to work as part of a team as well as developing their own practice in a fascinating and challenging setting.
