Date : January 13, 2024

Time : 11:00 am – 5:00 pm (Australia/Melbourne)

Venue : Altona Beach

In 2011, the children of Gaza broke the world record for the largest number of kites flown simultaneously. On the coast of Gaza, 15,000 children filled the Gazan blue skies with messages of hope.

We are adding our voice to and raising awareness of the call for a ceasefire in the Gaza strip, to prevent further casualties and allow for humanitarian aid to the survivors of bombin

Kites will be available on the day in limited numbers, and a kite building workshop will be available for you to put your support in the air. Get in early to secure a kite for you and your family, or bring your own.

If I must die,
you must live
to tell my story
to sell my things
to buy a piece of cloth
and some strings,
(make it white with a long tail)
so that a child, somewhere in Gaza
while looking heaven in the eye
awaiting his dad who left in a blaze—
and bid no one farewell
not even to his flesh
not even to himself—
sees the kite, my kite you made, flying up
and thinks for a moment an angel is there
bringing back love
If I must die
let it bring hope
let it be a tale

I want to attend

The event is free but attendance must register, if you want to buy a kit please get a ticket.
