Brimbank community members are invited to get involved in the One Million Stars to End Violence Project, and weave a star as an expression of support for ending all forms of violence.
The 1 Million Stars to End Violence Project originated in Melbourne in 2012 in response to the death of Jill Meagher and the rising incidence of violence against women. The project brings people together across Australia and the world. Stars were chosen as a symbol of light and hope.
Get involved to show your support for ending all forms of violence, and help demonstrate a more peaceful society, one star at a time.
Stars can be made out of whatever material you have access to, e.g. paper, old magazines etc. Tear Ribbon (30mm) is available online through giftpackaging.com.au (get 45% off using the code ‘1millionstars’).
Star weaving instructions and an online tutorial are available on One Million Stars.
All Brimbank stars will be used to form part of an exhibition at the Brimbank Community and Civic Centre in Sunshine.
In early 2017, the Brimbank stars will be sent to Brisbane to be part of a giant installation on display as part of the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games Arts and Cultural Program!
Brimbank City Council has registered to be a WEave100 community, where 100 communities across Australia have committed to weaving 10,000 stars each.
Stars can be dropped off at any Brimbank Library, or in the collection box, in the foyer of the Brimbank Community and Civic Centre at 301 Hampshire Road, Sunshine.
