Giant Puppet Festival

Siem Reap’s Giant Puppet Project has been celebrating for seven years already since 2007. The last celebration was in 23rd February 2013. It is an annual event for the children of Siem Reap in Cambodia. Providing a creative platform for disadvantaged children to foster and promote self expression and confidence through art are the objectives of Giant Puppet Project.

Over 500 children join the project every year. First step of the project involves three or four weeks of workshops. In the workshops, there are children from local school, orphanages and organizations. The children work together to create giant puppets. In two days, they will get giant puppets in size from ten to thirty meters. The puppets they made are about education, culture, or ecological themes such as road safety, endangered species, hygiene, local cultural appreciation and environmental awareness. They are produced through fun and creative workshops which are improving and encouraging the imagination of the children.

Second step, the final one is an exciting parade along the streets in Siem Reap Town. With many different puppets, Children are very happy to show their creation to the crowd of public from local communities as well as international tourists in the magic night. 

Many children are looking forward to joining the project next years.
