The Walk - Little Amal's UK Plans Revealed

Posted on: 07/10/2021 in: Events
Good Chance are delivering a really exciting project called "The Walk", at the heart of which is a a 3.5 metre-tall puppet of a young refugee girl, "Little Amal". Representing all displaced children, many separated from their families, Little Amal is walking across Turkey, Greece, Italy, France, Switzerland, Germany, Belgium and the UK, with a finale event in Manchester, England in November 2021. Little Amal has a number of events celebrating the power of art and shared humanity planned, and Good Chance are keen to spread the word about them.

Little Amal began her epic 8000km journey in Gaziantep in Turkey in July 2021. She is now over halfway through her route, and as of today has met artists and communities in Turkey, Greece, Italy, France and Switzerland. Her voyage will continue through Germany, Belgium, and back through France before she arrives in the UK on 19th October.

Many groups have been preparing to welcome her, and we know that Good Chance friends in the UK are eagerly awaiting information on where they can meet Little Amal, having followed her online. Amongst many other exciting events, Little Amal can be seen exploring Deptford Market in Lewisham on 22nd October, enjoying an afternoon of interactive storytelling at the Southbank Centre on 23rd October, celebrating her 10th birthday party in Trafalgar Square on 24th October, before a spectacular finale at Castlefield Bowl in Manchester on 3rd November.
