Join us for this Mishcon Academy event hosted by multiple Academy Award nominee and producer/director of The Crown Stephen Daldry and Olivier Award winner Juliet Stevenson. Stephen and Juliet will be talking to the creators of The Walk, a major international festival of outdoor art from the Turkish/Syrian border to Manchester in the UK.
At the heart of The Walk is ‘Little Amal’, a 3.5 metre-tall puppet of a young refugee girl, created by the acclaimed Handspring Puppet Company. Representing all displaced children, many separated from their families, Little Amal will travel over 8,000km embodying the urgent message “Don’t forget about us”. The Walk will happen between April and July 2021 and is being organised by the Good Chance Theatre Company.
Tracey Seaward (BATFA Award-winning and Academy Award-nominated Producer), Amir Nizar Zuabi (Artistic Director of The Walk) and Naomi Webb (Good Chance Exec Director) will be talking to Stephen and Juliet about The Walk and why it is being organised.
This live session will be introduced by Partner Maria Patsalos and will be held virtually on Zoom.
