About the website

Omoon is an online-based puppetry that provides a collaborative platform for creative exchanges between individuals and artists across all ages and expertise.

Omoon facilitates creative endeavors by providing practical steps in making puppetry using low-cost and no-cost materials such as toilet paper rolls, card boards and household items.

The initial Omoon project was created during the March 2020 COVID19 lockdown, henceforth the inspiration to use everyday household materials in creating an art piece that response to our new and (un)orderly experience. The continuation of Omoon project aims to document our individual/collective stories of COVID19.

Omoon website is predominantly supported by Banyule’s Arts and Culture Grant. The project is also supported by:
