Arab Puppet Theater Foundation:
The Arab Puppet Theatre Foundation (APTF) was founded in 2008 as a non-profit organization with the mission to encourage puppetry practices throughout the Arab world, advance new developments in the field, and function as an established puppetry school and theatre. The foundation has recently broken new ground in merging puppetry with film and literature to promote social and human rights issues.
