Call for Participants
"Founded in 2007 on New York City¹s Governors Island, what began as a few thousand enthusiasts enjoying a handful of participatory art projects on a sunny July afternoon has ballooned into a multi-day, multi-city event that drew over 30,000 participants in NYC, Boston, Jackson and Detroit in 2011.
In 2012, FIGMENT seeks to continue its mission to offer free, inclusive and participatory art to entire communities, removing the barriers of museum and gallery walls and entrance fees and blurring the lines between those who create and those who enjoy art.
FIGMENT embodies the belief that everyone can make something of artistic value and that the arts can build a community of our best selves. We¹re looking for artists who embrace those ideals to help us continue FIGMENT in its Southern setting."
