Card-yard is looking for designers, artists, and architects to showcase their skills and create outdoor installations and pavilions out of reclaimed materials. Last year PULP created 8 pavilions out of cardboard tubes and this year we are hoping to elaborate on that experience. Suggested materials include cardboard tubes, discarded wood, trees that fell in the storm, thrown furniture, or any other materials that would otherwise end up in the landfill or recycling centre. We are also looking for volunteers to help with our own construction process.

Pavilions need to offer shade and protection from rain and be safe no rusty nails or sharp corners and aesthetically pleasing. Safety is a major concern as children will be running around these structures. Pavilions should be 3X3 meters to accommodate activities by our programmers in them and be fully habitable. We may be able to connect activity programmers with pavilion designers.

Art installations need to be safe, aesthetically pleasing, plus offer some kind of interaction to visitors. This can be a large game or activity in itself up to the artist. Another type of art which will be welcomed is street planters out of reclaimed materials.

To volunteer or apply to create something at our festival, please email us at by Sunday, May 25.
