The National Center for Puppetry Arts (since 1993) is an artistic institution with administrative and financial autonomy under the supervision of the Ministry of Cultural Affairs.
Since its creation, the center has been engaged in essential tasks: creating, producing and distributing a quality product that has been adapted to the changing needs and expectations of young audiences.
Moreover, the C.N.A.M, participates through its own creations in the development of a specific aesthetic inspired by Tunisian cultural heritage, while being open to the world’s most prominent experiences in the field.
One of the central roles of the center is to support the child puppeteering theater culture and to promote its imagination through the different stages of its growth in order to help it fulfil itself and fulfil its dream world, its human world.
To do this, the Center bases its activity on four fundamental aspects: production; training; animation and promotion.
