Coogee Takes Flight presented by Frasers Property Australia



Sat 7 March: 10am - 9pm | Sun 8 March: 11am - 6pm




Event Information

A community arts project led by local Cockburn artist Melanie Gray of 22 Folds and brought to you by Frasers Property Australia / Port Coogee.

Coogee Takes Flight sees community members fold origami cranes and write their hopes and wishes on the wing. The individual cranes then all come together to create a giant installation where we will see them ‘take flight’. Each participant will be reminded that they are worthy of their wings, and collectively and symbolically become part of our community journey.

There will also be a booth located at the installation, where anyone who missed the project can colour in, fold and add their crane to the installation, with the help of a few of Melanie’s team to guide them.

Download the print at home doc, colour your crane if you wish, write your hopes and wishes on the wing in the oval section before you start 9so they appear on top of the wings of your folded crane) and follow the instructional video below!
