Pride Parade 2016

Saturday June 25th was the Pride Parade in Whitehorse and YuKonstruct was pleased to participate for the second year in a row.

YuKonstruct and (co)space’s contribution to the parade was a wonderfully whimsical float with rainbows, unicorns, truffula trees, bright colours, bubbles, and bikes! After winning “best float” in last years parade, YuKonstruct had a reputation to uphold!

A lot of awesome volunteer hours went into building the float and having fun, colourful, enthusiastic bubble blowers ride with us in the parade. THANK YOU to everyone that came out!

Next up: Canada Day! For anyone interested in joining our float for the parade, we will be re-decorating and riding down the streets with moose instead of unicorns and red and white replacing the rainbows. Here’s more info on the Canada Day Parade. You can also email questions to [email protected]

Volunteer Bénévoles Yukon Golf Tournament

YuKonstruct and (co)space are pleased to be participating in the 2016 VBY Golf Tournament. We look forward to seeing you at our sponsored tee!

The VBY Golf Tournament is a new way for Yukon non-profits to build relationships with the people they need – potential funders, sponsors, staff, and volunteers. Tee boxes are sponsored by local non-profits who decorate them and offer little activities like games and snacks. The idea is that players will pause for a few minutes to hear the NGO’s message, interact with them, and perhaps come away from it with a little new knowledge, or a new friend.

12 Days to End Violence Against Women Community Project

YuKonstruct partnered with Splintered Craft, the Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre, Les EssentiElles and White Ribbon Yukon to make a project for the 12 Days to End Violence Against Women campaign. Over several days we built a large sculpture with the help of many volunteers.

The sculpture depicts a woman walking forward, with the support of her community represented by glowing hands lifting her up.
YuKonstruct member Chris Lloyd designed the sculpture in SketchUP before it was brought to life in the real world.
The 7-foot-tall woman was constructed by wrapping copper wire around a welded skeleton. The 50 supporting community arms were made by “casting” volunteers’ arms with clear packing tape.

Community Build Night Cont’d

We are getting a group of builders together again! to continue to work on our big and awesome sculpture for the 12 Days to End Violence Against Women Campaign. The campaign is an effort to raise awareness about the staggering rates of violence against women (1 in 4 women in Canada!) and engage the community to take positive steps to end violence against women. So YuKonstruct will be constructing a giant sculpture to help promote the event and the messaging behind it.

This community project will start the evening of November 12th from 6-9pm and carry on from there as necessary. So come join YuKonstruct builder Chris Lloyd, Splintered Craft artist Jona Barr, and the rest of the guys to help build a statement piece against violence against women!

This event is part of the campaign by Victoria Faulkner Women’s Centre and Les EssentiElles. Funding comes from Womens Directorate and Crime Prevention Victim Services Trust Fund.
