Arts / Weave an end to violence

Share Canberra's trusted news:

THE Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House has reminded “CityNews” that the very last of its Sunday “Crafternoons” is coming up this Sunday (July 30).

MoAD, with the help of the Canberra community, is trying to weave 10,000 stars for the “One Million Stars to End Violence” initiative, which is a global weaving movement protesting against all forms of violence.

The community project, “One Million Stars to End Violence” was created by Australian artist and weaver Maryann Talia Pau. It encourages participants to work together to weave one million stars as a protest against all forms of violence. Since its inception in 2012, the initiative has grown into an international weaving movement.

Director of MoAD Daryl Karp believes that democratic engagement can take place in many different and creative ways, but “is at its most effective when informed”.

The stars will be displayed as part an installation at the 2018 Commonwealth Games to be held on the Gold coast.

The final “Crafternoon”,’at the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament House,  from 1.30pm—4.30pm this Sunday, July 30. All welcome. Entry is free after museum admission. For more information visit
