Description

New Step 4 U and Markham Association of Community Champions inviting you to lend a hand in a Community Art Project commemorating Canada’s 150th anniversary celebration.

Every good birthday party needs a special cake. To celebrate Canada’s 150th birthday we set out to create a 3D-printed cake using 3D printing pens. The cake will encompass Canadian symbols and the Canadian spirit. The symbols will be created using the 3D pens, which draw with plastic. The cake will be created between May 15th and July 1st by community organizations, and will be featured in the Canada Day Parade at Milne Park in Markham. The cake will feature 150 candles made from recycled cardboard tubes that will be carried by the community’s champions as they walk in the Markham parade.

You are invited to join us and other community organizations in creating this 12ft in diameter, 4 layers and 8ft tall cake. To help us create it, we ask you to spread the word in your community and network. Help us bring more people together for action as a symbol of unity among all members of our diverse community as we celebrate our collective pride of being Canadians.

The cake will be assembled the day before the parade at one of the building materials stores nearby, then transported to Milne park on a rental truck. The cake will be assembled in the morning at the park, and will be closing the parade on July 1st.

Participation in the creation of the cake project requires a minimum of 12 participants, the participants will be building the cake pieces using the 3Dpens. The participant’s fee is “pay what you can” based, and all proceeds will be going to support one of New Step For U’s programs that support people going through periods of transition through art.

Please join us as you will make this event a huge success. We are looking forward to your positive response.
