Come and join Little Amal on 27 June!

Staff and students are warmly invited to the return of Little Amal to our campus in Canterbury!

After captivating the world by travelling 8,000km from Syria to the UK embodying the urgent message “Don’t forget about us”,  Amal – a 3.5-meter puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee and now a symbol representing hope for migrants is once again coming back to the University of Kent!

This return has been organised in collaboration with the Migration and Movement Signature Research Theme.  Amal will join us as part of her New Steps New Friends tour with focus on Together Again on Monday 27 June at 14.00, where she will mark World Refugee Week and share a message of resilience, healing and hope with anyone who has been forced to leave their homes.

This event is a platform for us to heal through movement with Amal – a moment to express ourselves, exchange learning and our shared lived experiences, and to embody different cultures and communities through music and dance.

Come join us and Amal share awareness of the worldwide mass displacement!
