DEKU ART FORUM is a non-profit organization established in Tokyo, Japan in 2021. Our main mission is to promote and develop the art of puppetry in Japan and its connection to puppetry arts throughout the world. We provide creative support for puppetry in areas related to both research and practice. We provide information on overseas puppet theaters; offer linguistic and production support for Japanese puppet companies to participate in overseas performances and festivals; plan and produce festivals of international work in Japan; and organize conferences and lectures on puppetry arts.
