Be a star and celebrate Harmony DayPosted: March 17, 2017
You are a star, you really are! And that’s why you should pop into a Griffith University Library next week to celebrate Harmony Day.
Harmony Day is held each year on 21 March. It is a university-wide event where we celebrate our cultural diversity, inclusiveness, respect and promote a sense of belonging for everyone at Griffith University.
As a part of Harmony Day celebrations, our libraries will once again be taking part in the One Million Stars to End Violence project.
Visit the Star Making Table located in each library to weave a star or two, or three… In fact, we encourage you to make as many stars as you want!
There will be colourful ribbon, friendly library staff and easy-to-follow instructions available to you for the whole week. If you’re worried about your weaving skills, or just can’t wait until next week, head to YouTube and learn how to make them online.
The One Million Stars to End Violence is a peaceful global weaving project that engages communities in a conversation about ending all forms of violence.
It aims to end violence by bringing people together across the world to weave one million stars for a grand display in Queensland in 2018.
These woven stars are symbols of light, courage and solidarity to end all forms of violence, including violence against women, bullying and racism.
