Project Outline

The Puppet Portal Project aims to address the effects of hospitalisation on children by promoting a sense of community and communication through a combined creativity and technological intervention across participating hospitals.

Puppetry, storytelling and technology will be used to create interactive, contemporary puppetry performances via the hospital web portal, Ait Eile, the online community for children in hospital.
