CANSTRUCTION COMES TO BIDDEFORD

The Maine chapter of the American Institute of Architects is teaming up with Engine, a community arts organization based in Biddeford, Maine, for CANSTRUCTION, a charitable sculpture event, using cans of food to create amazing sculptures by teams of architects, designers, engineers and students.

The sculptures will be built inside vacant storefronts in downtown Biddeford, calling attention to the economic opportunities in our beautiful downtown and helping to feed patrons of the 30 year old Friends of Community Action pantry.

Teams need to sign up by completing the form below and emailing director@feedtheengine.org or mailing to Engine, 41 Franklin Street, Biddeford, Maine 04005. Deadline for signing up is October 5 by 5pm. Build day is October 22 from 8am-8pm and the awards & party are from 5:30pm-8pm on Friday, October 28 at 265 Main Street.

ABOUT CANSTRUCTION…IT STARTS WITH ONE CAN. TO FEED THE HUNGRY. TO LIFT THE SPIRIT. TO CHANGE THE WORLD.

Canstruction is using one can of food as a catalyst for change. One can to represent the building blocks of massive sculptures. One can to prove that every act of kindness makes a difference. Since 1992, Canstruction has contributed over 15 million pounds of food to community food banks demonstrating that we can win the fight against hunger.
