Bayside City Council have partnered with Southern Melbourne Primary Care Partnership to contribute to the One Million Stars initiative, a peaceful yet powerful response to the attack and murder of Jill Meagher by Maryann Talia Pau with the message that we do not need to experience tragedy to be diligent and committed to ending violence.
The project has since inspired an international movement to weave 1,000,000 stars as a way to shed light and keep the conversation alive of how we can end all forms of violence in our communities.
Throughout August 2016, Bayside Council is engaging its local community groups and residents to participate in this project by weaving 10,000 stars to be displayed in a magnificent installation at Bayside Council’s ARTrium space with a celebration event on White Ribbon Day, 25 November, 2016 . All stars weaved will then be contributed with others from all over the world to be exhibited at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland as a truly global message that we can end violence together.
