Forest of Cranes – Crane Folding Workshop and Guest Speaker – International Overdose Awareness Day 2022
Time: 12:00 pm
Location: Anglicare Tasmania, 31 King St, Devonport
Name of Organisation: Anglicare Tasmania and YFCC North West
𝐒𝐄𝐍𝐁𝐀𝐙𝐔𝐑𝐔 is the art of folding 1,000 paper cranes. It is said that if you fold 1,000 paper cranes and make a wish, it will come true.
We are calling on members of the Tasmanian community to help fold Japanese origami paper cranes to raise awareness of overdose.
Anglicare and YFCC will be holding a 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 in-person crane folding workshop on Monday, 8 August at Anglicares Devonport office. 12pm-1:00pm
These cranes will be added to our Forest of Cranes art installment.
If you can’t make it to the workshop in-person, no worries, you can register online here to watch the workshop via Zoom at the website.

If you’d prefer to fold cranes at home, you can pick up 𝐅𝐑𝐄𝐄 origami paper packs at:
– Anglicare Tasmania, 51 Wilmot St, Burnie
– Anglicare Tasmania, 31 King St, Devonport
– YFCC, 62 Stewart Street, Devonport
We invite the community to bring in their cranes throughout the month of August to contribute to our forest of cranes. There will be trees available in both Anglicare Burnie and Devonport and YFCC Devonport reception areas for you to hang your cranes on.
There will also be a minute’s silence to remember those we have lost to overdose,
So please join us to end the stigma. End the silence. #EndOverdose
