FIGMENT is a free participatory arts event that celebrates creativity by challenging artists and participants to find new ways to create, share, and dream. FIGMENT NYC will take place on Governors Island.
FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support.
FIGMENT Project is a leader in its field, bringing interactive art to a broad audience around the country and abroad by hosting free participatory arts events that offer the public a powerful experience, inspiring personal and social transformation. We invite you to celebrate 11 years of FIGMENT Project with a festive masquerade ball!BUY YOUR TICKETS HERE
