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]

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.
