Little Amal is the giant puppet of a 10 year old Syrian refugee girl, who has travelled over 9,000km with her message of hope and solidarity for displaced people everywhere. From September 14 – October 2 Little Amal Walks NYC in partnership with St. Ann’s Warehouse.

The start times for each of Amal’s events will be announced shortly. Until then, you can explore the listings below to see how Little Amal will be welcomed throughout the city.
