The Walk is an international arts festival meets endurance event. Little Amal will travel 8,000km to focus awareness on the refugee crisis. She will travel through 8 countries, welcomed by hundreds of cultural events in cities, towns and villages all along her route. The length and sheer size of the challenge is capturing imaginations even before her first step.
She will walk for all the children – many unaccompanied and separated from their families – who are forced to undertake extraordinary journeys under life-threatening conditions. Little Amal will walk so that we don’t forget them.
The Walk is part of the Caring City programme for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 which is funded by Spirit of 2012.
Some part of The Walk may be ticketed and are currently not on sale but will be released soon.
