Announced today (23 January), the Australian debut of Little Amal will surely be a highlight of Adelaide Festival this year. Funded by the South Australian Government and a number of individual patrons, Little Amal is a 3.5-metre tall puppet of a 10-year old Syrian refugee girl, created by Handspring Puppet Company to engage with everyday audiences worldwide.

Little Amal began her journey in The Walk in 2021, walking from the Syria-Türkiye border to the UK. Next, she will visit Adelaide.
