Join the FIGMENT team and community on Tues. Feb. 10 at Open House Club (244 East Houston) from 7:00-10:00 PM for our February Meet & Greet event.

The FIGMENT NYC team will be on hand to share exciting updates about our 2015 Sculpture Program and City of Dreams Pavilions (yes, plural!). Bring us your questions about submitting a proposal for FIGMENT Minigolf, the Treehouse, or FIGMENT weekend, and if you're interested in, or just curious about volunteering or getting involved in FIGMENT in any way, this is a great opportunity to learn more. 

We'll be joined this month by the team from ALPHA; FIGMENT's weekend camping event for creators.  Happening in Maryland, April 24th-26th, we use a bucolic space for workshops, skill-shares, building and burning (of art) too. Meet the ALPHA team and connect with other attendees to plan projects. Our effigy team, ALPHAGY, will be on hand as well and looking for volunteers. Learn more about the event at alpha.figmentproject.org and rsvp for the event at https://www.facebook.com/events/1539870592945929/ .

As always, the good company of our amazing FIGMENT/ALPHA community is assured, so join us to round out your Tuesday with a little creative energy and great people no matter whether or not you have questions.

Pleas RSVP to the Facebook event here, and please help us spread the word.
