the Puppet Process - community
In May of 2012, the CafCu Team, in collaboration with puppet artist Mia Kanazawa and an intergenerational team of volunteers, constructed back-pack and pole puppets made of used plastic foam trays. We collected thousands of used trays from NYC public schools, then washed them.
To fund the puppet project, we reached out to our supporters all over the country through Kickstarter.com. We raised over $2,500 for supplies and documentation of the project. The puppets have been parading all over New York city ever since!
