The Puppet Slam Network fostered connections between independently produced puppet cabarets, so that puppet artists knew where they could perform, venues could find puppet artists, and audiences could enjoy an intimate, tactile, and compelling form of entertainment.

Ibex  Puppetry (the parent company of the Puppet Slam Network) was dedicated to promoting the fine art of puppetry in all of its mediums. Founded in 2000 and receiving multiple UNIMA (Union Internationale de la Marionette) awards, Ibex Puppetry supported puppet art in the mediums of film, stage, gallery exhibits, workshops and artist presentations.
