The Amber Refuge One Million Stars Ireland at The Medieval Mile Museum for Culture Night 2021. Join us for a star weaving demonstration and find out more about our community arts project. Members of the public can register as a star weaver and take home a star weaving pack. The public are invited to tie a woven star to the Amber Refuge LOVE * Installation that is currently in the Museum courtyard. Each star represents light, hope and solidarity against violence and we raise domestic abuse awareness through our public star installations.
The One Million Stars Ireland project was brought to Ireland by art therapist Siobhan McQuillan who, working along with Amber Refuge, have reached out to organisations and communities throughout Ireland encouraging as many people as possible to become involved so they can reach their goal of one Million Stars to End Violence for Ireland.
This is the second time Medieval Mile Museum have been star hosts. In August 2020, the Museum which is part of Kilkenny Civic Trust hosted 3000 hanging stars as part of Design and Craft Council of Ireland’s sculpture trail CONNECTED. Last year, Medieval Mile Museum and Amber Refuge One Million Stars also ran a successful Culture Night.
The event this year will follow Culture Nights Theme “City and Colour” The LOVE* Installation in the Museum courtyard comprises of thousands of hand-woven coloured stars.
