Covid -19 Announcement

Dear FIGMENT friend, 

We hope you are staying safe, sane and creative during these uncertain times. 

Since we aren’t able to get together in person for the foreseeable future, we sadly have to postpone FIGMENT NYC that was set to be held on Roosevelt Island, June 6 -7, 2020. 

Times are tough and weird and interesting and full of new ways to do things we used to take for granted. We are inspired by the creative channels people are using to reach out these days. We want to stay connected and embrace interactivity and community! 

To help with that, FIGMENT is planning to get creative and interactive with you ...Virtually. To work towards that goal, we would love your input. Join us as we develop strategies to tackle these new challenges and opportunities. 

Fill out this FORM if you would like to be part of our virtual community as we experiment with new ways to explore interactive art. Contact us at nyc@figmentproject.org with any questions. 

Although we can’t hold FIGMENT on Roosevelt Island this year we would like to share a quote from the island’s namesake. “Take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”  - Franklin D. Roosevelt 

And since we value collaboration, a quote from FDR’s best collaborator: “You must do the things you think you cannot do.” -Eleanor Roosevelt

Thank you for all the support and inspiration you've given us these past thirteen years! 

Love and virtual hugs, 

FIGMENT NYC Team   (>^_^)>
