A little girl on a BIG journey
Little Amal is the 12 foot puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee child at the heart of The Walk. She has become a global symbol of human rights, especially those of refugees.
Since July 2021, Amal has travelled over 9,000km in 13 countries and been welcomed by more than a million people on the street, including hundreds of artists and civil society and faith leaders, as well as by tens of millions online. Her journeys are festivals of art and hope that draw attention to the huge numbers of children fleeing war, violence and persecution, each with their own story. Her urgent message to the world is “Don’t forget about us”.
From 29 March to 2 April 2023 Amal will visit London and Brighton for a festival of welcome, celebration and friendship. She will lead an interfaith celebration in the London Borough of Camden, will join business leaders in the City of London to raise urgently needs funds for displaced children across the world, will lead a walk of hope across Brighton beach and will lead a Sponsored Walk on London’s Hampstead Heath
