Amal to Close in 2024

It is with sadness that we announce our decision to bring Amal’s wonderful seven-year journey to a close, a decision taken after long reflection. Amal’s journey has been a rich and illuminating one thanks to the growing community that has worked and walked with us - donors, partners, artists, participants, advisers, friends and staff. We thank you all.
