British UNIMA is part of UNIMA, an international puppetry organisation.

The Union Internationale de la Marionnette (UNIMA) was founded in 1929, and is affiliated to UNESCO. UNIMA brings together people interested in the art of puppetry and in using this art to promote peace and mutual understanding between peoples, regardless of race, political or religious convictions and differences in culture. It organises conferences, festivals and publications and encourages professional training and research.

British UNIMA offers opportunities to attend international festivals and workshops, organises an annual lecture and other events, publishes Puppet Notebook magazine and a Newsletter three times a year, and reports news, events and opportunities on this website.
