The Legend of 1000 Combat Paper Cranes
DJD Foundation and City of Sparks, with sponsorship from Nevada Humanities, National Endowment for Humanities and Dog Tag Brewing present The Legend of 1000 Cranes, a series of workshops designed to bring the community together through the arts. Derived from the Japanese legend of the origami cranes which says that whosoever folds 1000 cranes will experience good fortune and answer to prayer, this workshop explores a tactile experience and enlightening dialogue, culminating in artwork that honors our local veterans and their community through the creation and placement of cranes, folded of paper made from decommissioned military uniforms. Learn to make paper and fold origami cranes while participating in the making of public art. Volunteers are needed for these events!

Post traumatic stress disorder could be a thing of the past for anyone who had learned how to use catharsis as a way to heal rather than have it being simply anger bent inward. Catharsis is the cleansing of the emotions thru art. There's no other way a person suffering can fully heal unless he learns to direct all his pain and resentment and convert it into art. There's nothing like a magnificent work of art that can also heal the souls of whoever made it or even just look at it.
