Annual festival of creative reinvention at Home ReSource this Saturday!

When the hammers start pounding and chop saws roar to life at 9 a.m. on
Saturday, September 17th, Missoula will know that the 12th annual
Spontaneous Construction building contest has begun. Affectionately called
“SponCon,” this signature Home ReSource event brings together artists,
builders, families, and friends for a day of serious fun at the Home
ReSource building materials reuse center at the corner of Russell and
Wyoming in Missoula.

At this one-of-a-kind competition, teams have seven hours to produce art or
craft for function or fun from just about any of the reusable building
materials at Home ReSource. Teams compete side-by-side in the Home ReSource
parking lot amidst hundreds of onlookers in an atmosphere made festive by
live music and local food.

Families who aren’t ready to step into the contestant area can let their
creative sparks fly at FREE, family-friendly activities like Paint-a-Door,
Build-a-Rack, Giant Jenga, Spin Art as well as an Artist Trading Card
station operated by volunteers from the ZACC. Family-friendly activities
begin at 11 a.m.

SponCon is an educational community event that highlights and celebrates
the creative possibilities of waste reduction.
