1000 Cranes- Pop Up Display

What does it look like when kids come together to create hundreds of paper cranes? Come to the Royal BC Museum to check out this pop up display, created by students from school district 61.

How this came about...

Last year for our RBCM @ Home (Kids) we had a session with artist/educator Laura Minta Holland where we learned to make your own origami cranes. This workshop was inspired by the Japanese practice of senbazuru, folding 1000 cranes in hopes of having one wish granted. This repetitive process allows for a space for calm, focus and mindfulness, which has been helpful during these unprecedented world events.

Watching during that session was a group of students from School District 61, led by educator Korina Miller. As a group of learners, they were motivated by this project and decided to make their own 1000 cranes.

Now it is time to show them off. 

If you can't make it to the museum, tune into RBCM @ Home (Kids) that day and join in wherever you are.
