The series began in 2010,
with the sneaking suspicion that puppeteers – people who think visually, make theater, are interested in the secret life of objects, and suspension of disbelief – might have interesting opinions about the world in general.
Nestled in the lounge at Dixon Place, Fireside Puppet Chats provided a forum to chew on random concepts together as a community.
