2) You can weave stars and organise volunteers within your community to run regular star weaving workshops with the aim to create a star installation in your local area.
Things to consider:
- Materials/funding for your workshops ie council grants etc
- Safe and clean storage of stars
- Safe and accessible venues for your workshops (public spaces or homes)
- Number of volunteer teachers you will need
- Communication channel for your star weaving teachers (WhatsApp, email, fb msg etc)
- Time frame for your workshops
- Venue for your installation
- Plan for your installation preparation (materials, people power, safety, visibility and accessibility)
From experience, it is helpful to have an installation date in mind as it helps people to work towards something and share in a common goal.
Once the installation is done, you can still star weave on a monthly or regular basis. Some communities have annual installations in different locations, for example, during the 16 Days of Activism, NAIDOC & Reconciliation Week in Australia and International Women's Day. Again, this is up to you and your community.
