For Whom

All Ages


Little Amal is the 12-foot-tall puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee child at the heart of The Walk. She has become a global symbol of human rights, especially those of refugees.

Since July 2021, Amal has travelled over 9,000km to 94 towns and cities in 14 countries and been welcomed by more than a million people on the street, including hundreds of artists and civil society and faith leaders, as well as by tens of millions online. Her journeys are festivals of art and hope that draw attention to the huge numbers of children fleeing war, violence and persecution, each with their own story. Her urgent message to the world is “don’t forget about us."

Between September 7th and November 5th, Amal will journey 6,000 miles across the United States. 35 towns and cities from Boston to San Diego and 1,000+ artists and arts organizations will create 100+ events to welcome her. Amal’s journeys of art and hope celebrate the rich stories of refugees, immigrants and displaced people, and the communities that welcome them.

Meet at the Kerrytown Farmer's Market to walk with Little Amal to the Downtown Library.

This event is in partnership with A2SF, the Arts Initiative, UMMA, and SMTD.
