Weaving together thousands of common 5-gallon painters’ buckets into two giant waves, One Bucket at a Time was first designed as a pavilion for Mextrópoli City Architecture Festival in March 2017. Originally inspired by the prevalent use of buckets to hijack public space in Mexico City, the strong local origins of the bucket have been reinterpreted by the design team in a new project for the Winnipeg Design Festival and Nuit Blanche/Culture Days.
HOW TO TAKE PART:
One Bucket at a Time is doubling its impact with an innovative community initiative: visitors are invited to “fill the wave” of buckets through individual donations of $20. Arriving in Canada empty, each bucket used to construct the project will leave for Mexico filled with Canadian generosity, with all proceeds to be given to Ayuda y Solidaridad con las Niñas de la Calle, a Mexican orphanage for at- risk girls and young women located in Mexico City.
