This year at TBTN Hamilton…. GIANT PUPPETS!
Melanie Skene of Many Hands Art will be bring her giant puppets to walk in Hamilton’s march this year.
I am an activist artist who is committed to creating art that explores issues related to the social justice and the environment. The central feature of my artistic work is creating and working with puppets, particularly giant puppets who are brought to life in community festivals and parades. My identity as an artist is complemented by my identity as an activist and my motivation for both stems from a desire to contribute to the creation of a more just world that respects earth as giver and sustainer of life.
– Melanie Skene
We are excited and honoured to have Melanie’s puppets join us in this year’s TBTN!
