Save Our Planet! Triangle CANstruction wants to raise awareness and show commitment to world conservation and preserving our resources, especially those that support the protection and growth of our worlds food supply. So let’s show Mother Earth what we can do!
Here in the Triangle we will hold the event on April 6th (First Friday, downtown Raleigh). It will be a scavenger hunt downtown Raleigh in conjunction with First Friday. Structures will be scattered throughout local businesses and art galleries! Our theme this year is Save Our Planet! We hope to have teams that have designs that range from Oscar the Grouch and Captain America to Pandas and Polar Bears! Last years event raised over 40,000 cans of food, we hope this year’s event will raise even more!
This year we also held a competition open to children of families supported by the Food Bank. We hosted them at the Salvation Army for pizza and craft time on September 27th from 6-8pm. Their task was to draw how they were going to help make earth ‘happy’ and protect it’s future. The designs will be formatted and printed on our CANstruction t-shirts this year!
In addition to supporting the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina, this event raises awareness in the community with a creative and challenging competition. The creativity embodied with this event not only shows the generous spirit of the design profession, it offers a unique way for the public to appreciate good design. These incredible visual icons simultaneously create awareness for art, design and hunger relief — a powerful combination!
