This new institution, formed by people from different fields, serves as a meeting point for people, ideas, opinions and points of view. Its main aim is to use the knowledge and experience of others as an addition to the development and consolidation of the future International Puppetry Centre.

Miguel Arreche and Idoya Otegi, TOPIC co-directors, pointed out that the Advisory Board was a priority objective for a centre of this nature, which describes itself as an open project. They stated that they “think it is important to open the doors, let the air come in and, above all, take advantage of the knowledge and experience of the renowned figures that take part on this Advisory Board. All in all, we want to incorporate different ways of thinking and develop new ideas”.

This first meeting of TOPIC’s Advisory Board was preceded by an intense day of activities which provided the opportunity to follow the International Puppetry Festival, currently underway in Tolosa, and to visit the rehabilitation site of the Law Courts on Tolosa’s Euskal Herria Square, scheduled for completion in November
