Acts of Welcome
One (very large) little girl is inspiring the world.
To ACT and Welcome
Good Chance Theatre calls on all artists and creatives worldwide to join a social media movement to welcome Little Amal, a 3.5 metre puppet of a 9-year-old girl who will walk from the Syrian border to the UK in search of her mother.
If you were in her shoes, what would make you feel at home when you arrive in a strange new village or town? The sound of a song ringing out your name? A mural depicting your journey? A poem celebrating your quest for a new home?
Opening your arms to welcome a stranger with kindness can be a radical act. Collectively these Acts of Welcome can change the way the world thinks about those who seem to be different. We need your help to achieve this. Each Act of Welcome will help Amal to take the next step into her future. She has 10 million steps to travel – so we need everyone.
Can we come together for Little Amal? Will you join us?
