The Puppetry Development Consortium is a think-tank and networking resource for professionals working in puppetry in England.

It was set up in response to the initiative ‘Working Together to Strengthen Puppetry’, which was funded by ACE through the Puppet Centre. Although the PDC‘s administration and co-ordination are carried out by the Puppet Centre, it is an independent group and has its own specific aims. The Consortium includes companies, venues and individual puppeteers/directors/designers and invitations have also been extended to membership organisations.

The Consortium met six times in 2015/6 with a further two sessions to explore a unified digital strategy. Evaluating this phase of work we have created a Summary and Action Plan based on the shared conversations between members, colleagues and mentors.
