Aglika Ivantcheva

Aglika graduated from the Department for Puppet Art in the Bulgarian National Academy for Theatre and Film Arts. Since her graduation she has brought puppetry to children and educators all over the world. Her specialization in Puppet Therapy and training in Psychodrama opened the magic door to approach people with special needs, and inspired her to find the creative nature of every human being. In Bulgaria she adapted and facilitated a National Educational Program for children with hearing impairments. She was invited to come to Canada to work for children with Autism and ADHD. Later she became an Early Childhood Educator where she now works, leading a Strong Start Centre in the francophone school district. She has worldwide experience offering puppet workshops, presenting performances, and providing professional training to educators and support workers to use puppets in education. Over the years she has offered many workshops in schools and in communities in BC and Quebec.
