EMAIL & JOIN A FREE LIVE STAR WEAVING TUTORIAL
The One Million Stars to End Violence project was created in 2012 by artist, star weaver and SNU co-Chief, Maryann Talia Pau, resulting in a public installation of one million woven stars during the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.
What began as a personal response to the rape and murder of a young woman named Jill Meagher in Melbourne Australia grew into an international star weaving movement engaging over 15 countries including Samoa, Fiji, Cook Islands, Tonga, Japan, Malaysia, Barbados, Ireland, England, Scotland Canada, USA, Aotearoa New Zealand, Kenya, Nigeria and Australia. Maryann's goal was to weave and collect one million stars however an outstanding 2.4 million were received, each star a symbol of light, courage and solidarity.
Today, communities around the world like Amber Women’s Refuge in Ireland, Perak Women for Women Society in Malaysia continue to bring people together through support, conversation and star weaving.
