Hear how master weaver and activist Maryann Talia Pau created a global social empowerment movement to take a stand to end violence against women and children. Through her One Billion Stars project, Maryann teaches weaving to foster community connection, story-sharing and temporary public art.
During this discussion, Maryann will talk about how the project started and how over one million stars were woven by communities all over the world to create a giant temporary public art installation leading up to the 2018 Commonwealth Games. Maryann will also share some exceptional stories from the global communities that were formed during this project.
Following the discussion, you're invited to learn how to weave a Pacific eight-point star from recycled materials in a star weaving workshop.
Motivated by the joy weaving brings to her, Maryann teaches others how to weave stars as a way of building trust and connection in the community. Collective star weaving is a powerful metaphor that reminds us we are all connected while embracing knowledge from ancestral wisdom and skill.
This event is scheduled during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence that runs from 25 November to 10 December 2021.
