1 Million Stars to End Violence Project

March 17, 2016

Salt Water Murris recently had weaver/artist Maryann Talia Pau on the Island doing weaving workshops with the Women's craft group and at the gallery. Maryann is based in Ormiston and is also Island Elder Aunty Marion Close's great niece on the Currie side. Salt Water Murris has registered the Island as a Weave100 Community as part of the 1 Million Stars to End Violence project and will be holding free community day star weaving workshops during school holidays, to raise awareness of domestic and family violence. The aim is for us to weave 10000 to contribute to the project. This is a fun form of weaving for all ages and is free to the community. Families are welcome. For more information on how you or your organisation/workplace can become involved, email saltwatermurris-q@bigpond.com One Million Stars to End Violence is a love and peace filled community project. These beautiful stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism. The Million Stars project began in Brunswick Victoria, 2012 as Maryann Talia Pau's response to the rape and murder of Jill Meagher. Since then, it has grown into an international weaving movement with 500,000 stars being woven by communities in Australia, New Zealand, the Pacific Islands, Europe and the USA. Some of these stars have been part of stunning displays at the Royal Exhibition Building Melbourne, Queen St Mall Brisbane (G20), Myer Melbourne and the Sydney Opera House. The Million Stars project is an opportunity for us to be light and hope in the world and to make something beautiful and powerful together. We know that domestic violence, violence on our streets, racism and harassment is happening RIGHT NOW and often it is difficult to know what to do to help those who are suffering and to help prevent it. The Million Stars project is an opportunity to remind each other that we CAN do something about it and not feel paralysed by all that is broken with humanity. The short term goal is to weave one million stars and to display at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018 in Queensland, in partnership with the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018) arts and cultural program. The long term goal is be light and courage for each other and not act violently with our words and actions, but with passion and generosity. Every woven star reminds us that we have to MAKE peace and safe spaces and that it doesn't just happen. Every star is a commitment to resist violence and revenge, to believe in forgiveness and healing. Ending violence is OUR responsibility, not one person, not one organisation or leader. Us. Everyone is welcome. Everyone matters.
