The Biennial of Puppetry Artists of Slovenia is organized by the Puppetry Artists Institution and Maribor Puppet Theatre.
As a central national festival, the biennial aims to present Slovenian puppetry to the broader domestic and foreign expert public (selectors, organizers and directors of foreign festivals and theatres, theatre critics and other members of the interested public), enable an exchange of knowledge and experience, showcase the most interesting content, and to award the best creations. It is both a festival and a promotion of puppetry arts.
