Activism Through Puppetry

Using Art to Make Social Commentary and Enact Change

Kate Katz is a Los Angeles based puppeteer and special effects artist. She attended UCONN's school of puppetry as a graduate student, as well as The Sandglass Institute, and the Eugene O'Neill Puppetry Conference. Her career credits include: Annabel Comes Home, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Westworld, and Aquaman.

Kate is also an activist and entrepreneur. Her company, All Hands In, uses a puppetry based approach to teach teambuilding and leadership skills within companies and organizations. Kate's activism really kicked off in 2016, but the majority of her personal puppetry work has always centered around themes of inequality and politics. Kate believes that puppetry is one of the strongest art forms one can use when making social or political commentary. She also believes that all artists must step up and use their voice to point out injustice and inequity in the world.
