Bring folded cranes to your local community event to contribute to the region’s artwork.
The event will provide opportunities to:

  • fold cranes
  • place cranes to create an artwork
  • learn about overdose
  • hear personal stories from our own Lived Experience Advocates
  • be a part of a minute’s silence to remember those lost to overdose
  • chat over a cuppa and refreshments

Share the photos of your cranes on social media to amplify our message of ending overdose. Use the hashtags #EndOverdose, #OverdoseAware, and #IOAD2023, and mention @OverdoseDay and @atdctas.

If you haven’t folded a crane, or if you can’t fold a crane – pre-folded cranes will be available on the day so everyone can be part of creating the art installation.
