A group of students at Saint Paul Creative Arts High School worked with puppetry and theater artist Maila Burkhart to conduct a puppetry residency entitled "Puppets for Peace Action." The students brainstormed what issue(s) they wanted to highlight, and they chose the issue of corporate responsibility, focusing specifically on the practices of Phillip Morris Companies Inc. The high school students recruited some younger kids to participate, and the entire group rehearsed and carried out a public performance at Intermedia Arts. Other students at the school performed original works of poetry with the help of a local spoken word artist.
