PREPARE, continued..

2) You can weave stars and organise volunteers within your community to run regular star weaving workshops with the aim to create a star installation in your local area. 

Things to consider:

- Materials/funding for your workshops ie council grants etc

- Safe and clean storage of stars

- Safe and accessible venues for your workshops (public spaces or homes)

- Number of volunteer teachers you will need

- Communication channel for your star weaving teachers (WhatsApp, email, fb msg etc)

- Time frame for your workshops

- Venue for your installation

- Plan for your installation preparation (materials, people power, safety, visibility and accessibility)

From experience, it is helpful to have an installation date in mind as it helps people to work towards something and share in a common goal.

Once the installation is done, you can still star weave on a monthly or regular basis. Some communities have annual installations in different locations, for example, during the 16 Days of Activism, NAIDOC & Reconciliation Week in Australia and International Women's Day. Again, this is up to you and your community.


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!
