Hartford is proud to welcome Little Amal!
Mark your calendars to join us Tuesday, September 12 at 1:00pm at Trinity and Elm Street in Hartford. Along the walk, Amal will experience dance, music, and live performance to guide her journey through Bushnell Park, ending with a celebration at the Burr Mall next to Wadsworth Atheneum.
A walk of hope in downtown Hartford to raise awareness for displaced children around the world.
Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl who has traveled across 13 countries meeting more than a million people, and watched by tens of millions more online. This fall, she will journey 6,000 miles across the United States in one of the largest free public festivals ever created.
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.
Everyone is welcome to walk with Amal.
