Local Start Time: 12:00pm

Location: Hartley Quay to Pier Head / George Parade

Country: UK 2022

Amal’s journey brings her to the Liverpool docks, where she will begin to learn about her new country’s history of migration, often joyful and often complicated.

Free to attend / no tickets required. 

As she explores this place of arrival and departure for hundreds of years, Amal will reflect on her own journey to the UK. She thinks about the many people who arrived the UK, in whose footsteps she now walks.

In partnership with Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres, Museum of Liverpool, Tate Liverpool and Royal Albert Dock Liverpool.

“Liverpool has always opened its arms to embrace migrants and refugees. As we look forward to sharing our city with Amal to explore, we know the footsteps she takes will be familiar to many of the Syrian, El Salvadorian and Afghani refugee families we have worked with over the years. Arts and culture are powerful ways to create connection and understanding, so our hope is that Amal’s visit will build on the work we’ve been doing and that of our cultural partners, including Museum of Liverpool, Tate Liverpool, Unity and SOLA Arts, serving as a reminder to us all to continue to welcome those who seek sanctuary.” Mark Da Vanzo, CEO at Liverpool Everyman & Playhouse Theatres
