A million stars of positivity are out in the world! ✨ We’re really excited to hear that artist, Maryann Talia Pau, has reached her goal of creating one million stars!

We featured an exhibition of Mary Ann’s colourful stars in BCM’s Crucible Gallery in 2015 as part of her One Million Stars to End Violence global weaving project. The exhibition was curated by the Artisan team. BCMers, with the help of some of our friends and family, managed to weave 500 stars ourselves, which we packaged up and contributed towards the project – and it has continued to grow and grow since that time.

The whole one million stars will be displayed as part of a large scale public installation during next year’s Commonwealth Games. Well done to Mary Ann for her inspiring, positive message. We loved being a part of the project! You can read about the project here: http://www.onemillionstars.net/ and check out her Instagram here: https://www.instagram.com/maryanntaliapau/
