A 12-foot puppet created in the image of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl is coming to the Detroit area this weekend as part of a free public art festival. “Little Amal” is on a 6,000-mile journey across the United States to bring attention to human rights and the larger number of children fleeing war, violence, and persecution in their countries. One Detroit contributor Daijah Moss spoke with the project’s artistic director, Amir Nizar Zuabi about Little Amal’s global walk and cause.
Little Amal will make stops in Detroit, Ann Arbor, Ferndale, Dearborn and Flint from September 23-27.
