Stars of HOPE
NOTE: There will be two sessions available on Tuesday, May 25. Please register for the 12 PM PDT/3 PM EDT session if you are a service provider or community member affected by Route 91. Please register for the 5:30 PM PDT/8:30 PM EDT session if you are a Route 91 survivor or family member.
UPDATE: Stars of HOPE is now giving participants the opportunity to make actual wooden stars at home by sending them free Mini Boxes of HOPE. Boxes include five wooden stars, paint, brushes, and a return label so you can send your stars to the HOPE Bank for communities and individuals in need of support. If you would like to receive a free Mini Box of HOPE, please provide your shipping address while registering. If you’ve already registered and would like a box, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of Stars of HOPE is to create a community of hope and healing through creative art-making. They use intentional art-making in the form of a star to give hope, show compassion, and promote healing in communities that have been impacted by tragedies such as mass violence.
Stars of HOPE invites you to join a virtual workshop to create paper and digital Stars of HOPE with the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. This workshop will offer a space for you to connect and create art right from your kitchen table.
Program Manager/Art Therapist Kelly Burns will guide you through this creative process with a mindfulness exercise and then discuss how to create your star with your choice of art materials. At the end of the workshop, you will have the opportunity to share your star with others who have been impacted by tragedy—promoting healing within all communities. You can send your star to us and we will include it in a banner that will be a collage of all the stars from this workshop to be sent in support of another community impacted by tragedy.
In response to Las Vegas, Stars of HOPE volunteers from Orlando and San Bernardino met with patients and staff at Sunrise Medical Center to show support from their own life experiences. They would be honored to have you participate in this project.
