A twelve day long puppetry festival titled “Gonojagoron er Putul Natya Utshob” inaugurated on Friday. Bangladesh Shilpakala Academy has organised the nationwide festival .
According to BSA, puppetry is one of the most effective means of folk education. Through its presentation and stylistic approach over the ages, puppetry has played a significant role in the moral development of individuals and in bringing about social and national change by explaining content, time and context.
Thus, to engage and inspire people from all walks of lives in Bangladesh, BSA took this initiative in 120 locations across the country through the presentations of 30 puppetry troupes nationwide. The festival will run until October 10.
