International Overdose Awareness Day is the 31st August 2020. #IOAD2020.

Why Cranes? 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.

Each crane will be hung and photographed to become part of a larger digital artwork put together by the Alcohol Tobacco and other Drugs Council (ATDC) to commemorate International Overdose Awareness Day 2020.

Anglicare are calling on members of the Tasmanian community to help fold Japanese cranes and to share tributes to remember Tasmanians lost to overdose and wish for a community free from the harm of overdose.

Drug overdose continues to impact Tasmanians of all backgrounds – with more than one person lost every week to overdose across Tasmania
Come along to help us fold cranes to create another memorial to those lost to overdose and an opportunity to discuss the risks and impact of overdose.

*Silver Overdose Awareness Day pins available on the day
