About Little Amal Walks NYC
A refugee child on an EPIC journey.
Little Amal Walks NYC is a free public art festival featuring Amal, a 12-foot tall puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl who has traveled across Europe and is continuing her journey in NYC this fall. The walk is a celebration of art, hope and shared humanity that aims to unite communities and refocus attention on the urgent needs of migrants and refugees. Welcomed both by people and institutions of power, and by a diverse range of the city’s marginalized communities, Amal gives voice to those who have been othered, creating empathy everywhere she goes.
