Theatre Action Project’s First Night 2008 project was all about Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. Over 3,000 young people were apart of our project that focused on how we can each play a role in making Austin a peaceful community.
Our goal was to have 1,000 child and community made paper peace cranes to send to Japan’s Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum and this week we sent our last bit of cranes to Japan with the help of volunteers from Convio, who helped string cranes together.
We’re excited to send off the last of the cranes and make our contribution to the museum. We’re also so grateful to Convio for helping us to accomplish this!
