This year marks the ten year anniversary of the 2011 Northeast Japan Earthquake and Tsunami that killed 15,000 people and relocated 200,000. In the past, we have organized origami paper crane folding events on Copley Square to commemorate the tragedy.

However, with the COVID-19 Pandemic, the event this year to celebrate the ten years that have passed since the disaster will be contactless. We will display large white origami paper cranes on the lawn of Copley Square. The paper cranes are constructed from 6ftx6ft cardstock paper, and each have a wing span of 5ft. They will be on display from 10:00am to 5:00pm on Saturday, March 6th, and on Sunday, March 7th.

Please come see the large white origami paper cranes on the lawn of Copley Square, and take a moment to remember the tragedy ten years ago.
