The Little Amal giant puppet

ArtsEmerson, along with the city of Boston and partners in the local arts community, welcomed to Boston, Little Amal, a 12-foot-tall puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl, on September 7. The visit to Boston kicked off her 6,000-mile trek across the United States. Little Amal, whose name means “hope” in Arabic, carried her message of hope for marginalized people everywhere, particularly children who have been separated from their families.
