Acts of Welcome

One (very large) little girl has inspired the world.

To ACT and Welcome

Good Chance Theatre called on all artists and creatives worldwide to join a social media movement and welcome Little Amal, a 3.5 metre puppet of a 9-year-old girl who has walked from the Syrian border to the UK in search of her mother.

We asked you: 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 have helped change the way the world thinks about those who seem to be different.

Each Act of Welcome helped Amal to take the next step into her future.  She has a big future ahead of her – so thank you for coming together for Little Amal.
