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.

The Alcohol, Tobacco and other Drugs Council is 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.

Take a photo of each single, origami, folded crane so it can be a part of a larger digital artwork to commemorate International Overdose Awareness Day. This year we’d also like you to share what Overdose Day means to you. In remembrance of those who have lost their lives or been injured, we invite you to submit a tribute along with your origami cranes.

We will be releasing the large digital artwork on 31st August to commemorate International Overdose Awareness Day and show the impact that overdose has on anyone within the community.
Crane photos to be submitted by Tuesday, 18th August.
