Calling all star weavers

Queenslanders have a unique opportunity to be a part of Commonwealth Games history and join the international movement to end all forms of violence by participating in the One Million Stars to End Violence project.

Queensland artist Maryann Talia Pau created the One Million Stars project in response to her observation of the escalating occurrence of violence in Australia.

The Queensland Government has partnered with Maryann to raise awareness and connect communities across the Commonwealth through star weaving.

Each star is a symbol of light, courage and solidarity and is woven as a statement to end violence. The aim is to have one million stars woven by July 2017 to feature in a massive installation at the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

You can become a star weaver today. Host a Star Weave Jam with friends, family, neighbours or colleagues and start weaving.
