Since 1998, we have been using cardboard, corn starch, bamboo, your old house paints, and other assorted junk to create giant puppets, masks, shadow plays, and performances for all ages. We tell stories, beat drums, paint cardboard, sew cloth, get sweaty, push boundaries, and carry heavy things to help make the world a better place. Our parades, pageants, and shows are celebrations for everyone to enjoy; they are expressions of our love, for the earth and its creatures. Community is the lifeblood of PAPERHAND, helping us in so many ways. Thank you all for your love and support!
