The Walk

Come one, come all to walk with Amal! The Remote Theatre Project in collaboration with numerous local organizations invite you to a free concert on August 4 with Kinan Ahmez CityBand at Fort Allen Park in preparation for August 5. There will be a parade from Monument Square to Ocean Gateway for a concert and virtual live connection with Amal, the 12 foot puppet who is walking from Turkey to the UK to spread awareness about displacement, belonging, and the refugees’ plight. Portlanders connect with Amal live via video wall interaction at Ocean Gateway!
