Office of Multicultural Services and Programs (MSP) is looking for partners in a very unique endeavor, One Million Stars to End Violence. One Million Stars to End Violence was started in 2012 by Maryann Talia Pau. Ms. Pau is from Auckland, Aotearoa New Zealand. This is a peaceful global star weaving project encouraging communities to engaging in a conversation about ending all forms of violence. This is a personal journey due to the rape and murder of a young woman in her community. She was moved by her communities’ kindness and compassion and by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s words of bringing light and love in the world. 


"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." – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Ms. Pau's goal is to create a one million star arts and cultural display for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games to be held in Queensland, Australia. Stars from all over the world will be combined in this display of 1,000,000 stars.

Anyone can get involved. We are inviting individuals, groups, university, business, and communities to host Star Weave Jams. A Star Weave Jam just brings participants together in your home, studio or workplace and to weave stars together. Participants can choose to Star Weave Solo where you weave stars yourself in the comfort of your own home. Stars can be made out of whatever material you have access to (ribbon, paper, or old magazines).

The Office of Multicultural Services and Programs goal is to partner with departments, divisions, colleges, businesses, Terre Haute and surrounding communities, and universities to meet our 10,000 star goal.

We will be the 6th Star Weave Community in the United States and the second in the State of Indiana.

The most outstanding accomplishment is that Indiana State University will be the first university Star Weave Community in the State of Indiana.

If you are willing to be part of this global Star Weave journey to End Violence, please complete the interest survey soon to be released. Training sessions will be scheduled beginning the March 2017.
