Origami cranes became a symbol of peace because of Sadako Sasaki who became ill as a result of the Hiroshima bombings. Sadako created one thousand origami cranes whilst having treatment for leukemia, and since then they have become a symbol of peace and healing, seen across the world. This inspired the Origami Cranes Project, which was coordinated by Making Space for the Derbyshire and Derby City Dementia Support Service. The cranes on display have been made by people living with dementia, their carers, family members and friends at Memory Cafes and support groups across Derbyshire and Derby City.
