Each year in Vancouver the Canstruction competition and exhibition showcases talented individuals and teams who can design and create magnificent structures and sculptures by using nothing but cans of food.
What Canstruction Vancouver – Public viewing of the exhibition
Where The new Vancouver Convention Centre, use Thurlow street entrance
When April 26 – May 3, 2009 daily from 10:00am to 6:00pm
Admission By donation (though keep in mind that for every $1 donated, the Food Bank can purchase $3 of food)
It’s a great outing for all, especially families and children who might get a kick out of some of the creations. This year’s theme for the competitors is “Throughout History: from Caveman to Spaceman“.
After the week-long event, the structures (that can be up to 2 meters high and contain thousands of cans) are disassembled and all food items are donated to the Greater Vancouver Food Bank Society.
The Food Bank is currently looking for volunteers to help out next week during the exhibition. You can find more information on their website or follow @VanFoodBank on Twitter for updates.
