Mathers After Hours--Star Weaving with Lotus
- December 1, 2016
- Mathers Museum of World Cultures
- 416 N. Indiana Avenue, Bloomington, IN 47408
- 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM
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 is one of only three US group partnering 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. Registration is not required, but if you are planning to bring a large group, please let us know (contact Loraine@lotusfest.org). Light refreshments will be provided. The event will be free and open to the public.
