aceartinc.’s 4th annual Soap Box Derby

A fundraiser for aceartinc. September 7th 2-4 pm.

2nd-draft-poster-2014-derby-edit-web

 

The aceartinc. Annual Soap Box Derby is a proud partner and anchor event of Ciclovia and ManyFest. A FREE eco-friendly, healthy-lifestyles festival and active transportation initiative that will see the north side of Broadway closed from Osborne to Main Street creating a network of car-free streets from Assiniboine Park all the way to Broadway.

The aceartinc. Soap Box Derby combines all the things we love- community participation, reaching a broad range of people, promoting Artist-Run Centres, and promoting contemporary art practices and artists — in the most fun and inclusive way possible.

Here is how you can get involved:
Get three friends, coworkers, family members, or friendly strangers together and create a team. All you need is four team members (one driver + three pushers/pullers) and a Soap Box car. Your car can take any form, a space-rocket, a circus caravan, a little red wagon with bunting, a repurposed door on wheels, a highly engineered bicycle contraption, make it as simple or as elaborate as you like…the design options are endless! So long as it has at least 4 wheels, it stops safely, it won’t hurt you or anyone else, the driver wears a helmet, and waivers are signed, you can race.

If you register before June 30th you get a reduced rate. What are you waiting for? Register your team NOW!
