ICGC would like to welcome Siphokazi Mpofu and Sipho Ngxola of the Ukwanda Puppet and Design Collective to Minneapolis!
These talented puppet artists come to us through our collaboration with the Centre for Humanities Research at the University of the Western Cape in South Africa, supported by the arts and humanities initiative through a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. They are working with the In the Heart of the Beast Puppet and Mask Theater in Minneapolis to build a puppet and work with the community for the annual MayDay Festival and Parade.
