I have to admit that it gets a bit monotonous writing about non-profit jobs every weekend. There’s an endless number of organizations to cover, but so many of them are very similar to ones that I’ve already featured. But today I found one that is about as unique a non-profit as I’ve come across in my nearly four years of doing this. It’s the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, GA. They’re exactly what they sound like, an organization that “is the largest American organization solely dedicated to the art of puppet theater.” I’ll admit that I haven’t been to a puppet show in a while, but when I was a little kid I put on a mean one. Puppetry is an interesting art because it can be as simple as a sock on a hand or as complex as Big Bird. It may not get as much credit as other performing arts, but it’s definitely worthy of having an organization devoted to it.

Be the Puppet Master

When the Center for Puppetry Arts opened in 1978, Kermit the Frog cut the ribbon. How fitting is that? Since then the Center has been working to cement its place as “a unique cultural treasure – a magical place where children and adults are educated, enlightened and entertained.” The Center for Puppetry Arts has five core values:

  1. We believe puppetry is awe-inspiring and magical.
  2. We believe in providing awesome artistic experiences.
  3. We believe in unlocking imagination.
  4. We believe in inspiring every generation.
  5. We believe in the people behind the puppets.

Judging from the Center for Puppetry Arts’ website, they’re certainly living up to them. You can see the Center’s performance here, and you can take a look at what their museum has to offer here. If you love puppetry, then a career with the Center for Puppetry Arts might be exactly what you’re looking for. Their Jobs page only lists a Museum Curator position right now, and it requires a few years of museum experience. However, there are some internships with stipends available, and you can always reach out to them about unlisted positions. Maybe someone will pull a string for you.
