The Manhattan National Historical Project

Submit an origami crane with your personal message of peace written on its wings. These cranes will be saved in a time capsule and opened in 2045 on the 100th anniversary of the atomic bombings. The park may also share these messages of peace to foster dialogue about the complex and fraught legacies of the Manhattan Project. 

The park is accepting cranes in three formats: traditional origami crane, a flat crane using an origami crane cut-out, and digital messages of peace. The links below provide detailed instructions for each option. Choose the option that works best for you. 

Send your crane and message of peace to the park site that resonates the most with you by August 5, 2020.
