Peace cranes come to Derby
As part of Derby Peace Week, Artcore is inviting people to make paper cranes.
Why paper cranes?
A child named Sadako Sasaki who was a victim of the bombing of Hiroshima developed leukaemia. Despite being gravely ill, Sadako managed to fold 1,000 paper cranes, hoping that an ancient Japanese legend was true – that this would grant her wish to be healthy again. Tragically, she passed away within months, but her story has become a global symbol of peace, and a reminder of the human tragedy and unimaginable suffering that today’s nuclear weapons threaten.
When & where
Individuals are invited to Artcore 8 Albert Street Derby DE1 2DS on Mon 21 September between 12 noon and 4pm. Due to COVID-19, only 5 individuals will be allowed in at any one time. They will be shown how to make origami paper cranes that will be displayed at Artcore for Derby Peace Week (20-28 September)
