Cranes on the Square

Sunday, March 12th, 2017 at 11:30am 

The Plaza of Copley Square in Boston

Free and Open to the Public

This event commemorates the Sixth Anniversary of the Great Northeast Japan Earthquake and Tsunami that struck Japan on March 11th, 2011. Please visit Copley Square and take a moment to make a paper crane and reflect on the victims of the earthquake and tsunami.

Cranes on the Square is centered around an interactive display where passersby will participate in making paper cranes, which they will then add to the display. Cork Styrofoam panels will be placed on the plaza, and as the participants fold the paper cranes they will use skewers to stick the paper cranes onto the panels. As more people participate, the panels will fill with paper cranes. The goal of the event is to get the public involved in an activity that will bring awareness to the tragedy that occurred in Japan six years ago.
