The Hope Commission

Who is Little Amal?

Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee girl who has traveled across 13 countries meeting more than a million people, and watched by tens of millions more online.


This fall, she will journey 6,000 miles across the United States in one of the largest free public festivals ever created. 35 towns and cities from Boston to San Diego and 1,000+ artists and arts organizations will create 100+ events to welcome her. Amal’s journeys of art and hope celebrate the rich stories of refugees, immigrants, and displaced people, and the communities that welcome them. Everyone is welcome to walk with Amal.

The Well is thrilled to welcome Little Amal with open arms and hearts to the US and Cincinnati on September 22, 2023 with a newly commissioned piece of music composed by Sonia Morales-Matos and performed by the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra for Mindful Music Moments!

The Hope Commission began with a visit to Refugee Connect during their World Day Cup on June 24, 2023. We asked everyone who stopped by our table to play instruments and dance with us "What gives you hope?"


Sonia asks "What reminds you of home?"


Sonia's new music will be inspired by asking local refugee families and folks about their journeys, what gives them hope, and what reminds them of home.

The new music will premiere in schools participating in Mindful Music Moments (week of 9/18) and on The Well's YouTube channel!

Stay tuned for more on how to engage and listen this September!
