Little Amal Walks NYC: All Brooklyn appearances & free puppet workshop and Amal in Brooklyn Bridge Park 9/24

A little girl on a BIG journey, Little Amal is the giant puppet of a ten year old refugee girl, at the heart of Little Amal Walks NYC. Since July 2021 she has traveled over 9,000km across 12 countries representing all children fleeing war, violence and persecution, with the urgent message: “Don’t forget about us.” From September 14 to October 2, Amal will travel to New York City in partnership with St. Ann’s Warehouse. After arriving at JFK Airport, she will travel through all five boroughs, meeting artists, civic leaders, community groups and young New Yorkers of all backgrounds. All of Amal’s events are suitable for children and families.

Brooklyn Bridge Park family event September 24:

Amal is in a mischievous mood as she chases pigeons through Brooklyn Bridge Park on Saturday, September 24 from 10 am to 11.30 pm. She comes across a gathering of children and families all making their own pigeon puppets. Musicians start to gather and before she knows it, she is surrounded by a flock of pigeons. Together they lead her across the Brooklyn Bridge towards Manhattan.

10 am – join in with puppet making workshops before Amal’s arrival

11 am –  20 minute welcome performance for Amal with 100 performers carrying artist made pigeons and a group of musicians, Fogo Azul.

The workshop and performance will take place outdoors by the Empire Fulton Ferry lawn near Pier 1 in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Free RSVP here.
