Weave a Star and Start a Conversation
Take a stand against violence with your community
Big Sky Libraries is participating in the One Million Stars to End Violence project and is calling on schools, workplaces and community groups to help to weave stars for collection at the end of June to go towards a large scale public art installation during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.
The Moree Community Library will be holding a Star Weave Jam on Friday 17 March 2017 from 10:30am and invites residents to come along and join in the conversation.
Moree Library Coordinator Samantha Geatches explained the One Million Stars project, created by Maryann Tali Pau, is a peaceful global weaving project that engages communities in a conversation about ending all forms of violence.
“Each star weaved symbolises a person’s commitment to practice light, hope, courage and solidarity.
“Raising community awareness is very important because Moree has a hidden domestic violence issue and we want to weave communities of courage to end violence,” she said.
The project finishes in July 2017 and all stars made will feature in a large scale public art installation during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, sending a visible message of hope and compassion around the world.
The stars can be made of any material (such as old newspapers, magazines, gift wrapping ribbon, etc.) and instructions and video tutorial on how to make the stars are available from the library or the One Million Stars website.
Drop your finished stars to the Moree Community Library by mid June 2017.
