So, how does weaving stars end violence?

If you’re a star weaver for the One Million Stars project, chances are you’ve been asked this question or are wondering the answer to this yourself. With stars due tomorrow, and the target of one million woven stars in sight, questions like these are becoming more frequent and the courage to speak plainly and honestly about the impact of star weaving is important. It can be a tricky one to explain because the One Million Stars project has so many layers and values and even though they’re simple ones, it’s helpful to know how to break it down plainly so that people can catch it. I’ve tried to explain it as best as I can, with the help of Louise Doble at OCG on the ‘Frequently Asked Questions’

The One Million Stars project acknowledges the traditional owners and continuing custodians of the lands and waters where we weave, live and play. We give our respect to elders past, present and emerging.


THANK YOU to everyone who helped to make the 2018 One Million Stars installation a reality. We did it! And it was BEAUTIFUL & POWERFUL!

The One Million Stars to End Violence project continues and is an ongoing international weaving movement created in 2012 by Pasifika weaving artist and entrepreneur, Maryann Talia Pau.

We understand this project has had a powerful impact for some people. For emotional and physical support, please speak with someone you trust or seek professional advice. You are important!
