Walk with Amal is the journey of a 12-foot puppet representing a young Syrian refugee girl on an international search for her mother. On November 2, 2023 between 1-3pm, Little Amal will participate in Looking for Home, a First Amendment Rights march, to draw attention to the rights of refugees, migrants, immigrants, the unhoused, and all who need a home. Little Amal has become an international human rights symbol for displaced people. As we march together through the urban core of Los Angeles, we shall witness how the arts can help build a human connection with compassion in the face of societal struggles and challenges.
The march will begin at ICA LA in the Arts District and end with a puppet performance at Gladys Park in Skid Row, with stops at Para Los Niños and Inner-City Arts. Inner-City Arts families are welcome to our campus Oct. 28 from 11:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. to help make signs and flags to welcome Little Amal. For questions, please email email@example.com.
Little Amal: Looking For Home is organized via a partnership between Los Angeles artists and arts organizations: ICA LA, Los Angeles Poverty Department, Automata, Inner-City Arts, Para Los Niños, Immigrant Defenders Law Center, and artist Dorian Wood.
