Peace Cranes is a collaboration between The United Way of Rhode Island and The Empowerment Factory (TEF) that encourages people to write their hopes and dreams for the “new better” Rhode Island and use them to create peace cranes, folding them in the traditional style of Japanese origami. The impetus of this initiative is to share positivity and hopeful aspirations for our community.
On Nov 21, 2020 at 09:00 AM, we are hosting a virtual class about How to make a Paper Cranes. To register visit United Way’s website: National Family Volunteer Day, 2020
According to Japanese mythology, If you fold 1,000 cranes, your wishes will come true. To promote the participant’s entries of hope, UW and TEF are creating an art installation that aspires to exemplify the goal of the tradition.The location remains to be determined.
