Star Weave Jam
Sat 15 July, 11am–2pm
Join artist Maureen Lander and Te Whare Rokiroki, Māori Women's Refuge/Wellington Women’s Refuge to weave stars that will be installed at the 2018 Gold Coast Commonwealth Games, as part of the international project One Million Stars, that raises awareness about domestic violence.
About the Project
Project creator and Queensland-based artist Maryann Talia Pau collaborated with the Queensland Government last year in an effort to engage communities across the world to help weave one million stars for an installation during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games as part of the arts and cultural program.
Ms Talia Pau said it was great to see so many weaving communities getting together to weave a little extra light and hope in the world.
‘‘Each woven star represents light, hope, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence in our world,’’ Ms Talia Pau.
‘‘The installation will be a collective statement against ending all forms of violence and also support the Commonwealth Games Federation’s vision of a peaceful, sustainable and prosperous global community.’’
