Urgent Help Needed for FIGMENT


FIGMENT is really humming this year. We have events in more cities than ever (11 in 3 countries!), our ALPHA event was bigger and better than ever, the infrastructure and support systems we put in place for all our events are working well, and a new FIGMENT book is about to be released!  

However, at the same time, we just got hit with our annual insurance bill... $32,000. This is 20% more than last year, 3x what we paid in 2014, 4x 2013, and 6x what we paid in 2012 and before. FIGMENT is growing, but by 5-10% a year. We're built to keep scaling, but not if our insurance and other costs go up so much faster than we're growing. 

We need your help to get through this. This is an urgent appeal. This enormous insurance bill (the most we've ever paid for anything in our history) has the potential to make it very difficult for us to continue. Can you make a donation today to help us get past this? Any amount helps.  

Thank you for your help in getting us past this hurdle and on to a beautiful summer of free public participatory art for everyone!

Please note that all donations are 100% tax deductible. 

The Treehouse Returns!

We're excited to announce that the treehouse will return this summer as part of FIGMENT NYC's 10th Anniversary celebration! 

Benjamin Jones, original artist of the famous FIGMENT NYC Treehouse, retired his original design at the end of the 2015 season, and now a group of architecture students have envisioned an entirely new design that will debut this summer at the 2016 FIGMENT NYC event.
