Lotus will host a star weaving station at this event, as part of the One Million Stars to End Violence project. Learn to weave an 8-pointed star and join a worldwide movement!  Instructors will teach the Samoan star-weaving technique and share this Australian-led initiative inspired by a quote by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.: “Returning hate for hate multiplies hate, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate, only love can do that.” Lotus was the 2nd US partner with the Australia-based initiative “One Million Stars to End Violence” and has committed to weaving and contributing at least 10,000 stars to this project. Stars will be on display at an exhibit in City Hall throughout the month of December, and then as part of a worldwide installation of 1,000,000 stars in 2018. Recommended for ages 8 and up, including families and groups.
