Little Amal is a 10-year-old refugee from war-torn Syria. She is also a 12-foot puppet who has traveled 5,000 miles across Turkey and Europe to the UK in search of her mother. On her journey, she’s been welcomed by almost a million adults and children. Now, she comes to New York City in search of her Uncle Samir.
She will be welcomed by hundreds of artists, cultural organizations, community groups, schools and colleges in all 5 boroughs. The whole city is invited to take part in her 17-day traveling festival of art and hope.
