THE PADDLING PUPPETEERS
BOARDWALK TENT • SATURDAY, AUGUST 19 & SUNDAY, AUGUST 20 • 2:30PM
The Paddling Puppeteers have been performing their musical puppet shows across Canada since 1999. A variety of colourful puppets bring to life many stories having to do with the environment. The shows present ideas of how we can take simple steps to preserve and restore Canada’s natural heritage.
Glen grew up in Kingston Ontario and spent endless hours playing in and beside Lake Ontario. He graduated from Trent University in Indigenous Studies in 1992. He then worked in the Deaf community for 10 years while volunteering at the GreenUp Ecology Park.
For the last 23 years, Glen has been working and teaching at Camp Kawartha, GreenUp Ecology Park, The Canadian Canoe Museum and with the James Bay Cree Nation (in arts education.)
In 1998 Glen founded the Paddling Puppeteers and after 25 years is just getting started!
