One Million Stars Project

College students have been busy sharpening their weaving skills for the One Million Stars Project.

Each star may appear simple, but don’t let this fool you. With over 20 folds each, it takes about 15-20 minutes to create a single star.

We are so proud of our students, who have achieved their goal of creating 1000 stars.

These will now be off to a special exhibit to be created during the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games.

What is the project about?

One Million Stars to End Violence is a global weaving project that engages communities around the Commonwealth and the world in the conversation about ending all forms of violence.

Why one million stars?

One million stars represents how monumental the task of ending violence is and that everyone needs to participate to end all forms of violence. Each star represents a person’s commitment to practice light, hope, courage and solidarity and the one million star installation will be a peaceful statement against all forms of violence in our communities.

The One Million Star installation will be held during the
Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games (GC2018), Queensland, Australia.
