The Walk Education Programme
From July to November 2021 a giant puppet of a 9-year-old Syrian refugee girl called Little Amal is walking from the Syria-Turkey border, across Europe to the UK, travelling 8,000km to focus awareness on the refugee crisis.
Before, during and after her journey Little Amal will connect people from refugee and non-refugee communities through creative learning projects to help forge lasting bonds of friendship. The Walk‘s Education programme will be developed by, with and for each community, responding to local realities with a focus on bringing people together through projects that transcend borders, culture and language. Working with all age groups, we aspire to build a programme of workshops, performances and apprenticeships that celebrates migration and has the potential to empower what might otherwise be a lost generation of refugee children.
