Volunteers Wanted NOW for Figment NYC Projects

Welcome Volunteers!

As an entirely volunteer-run event, FIGMENT NYC is people-powered by folks just like you. We NEED your help! Whether you have a few hours, a few days, or want to become part of the team that makes FIGMENT NYC happen year-round, we hope you'll consider giving some time to this incredible event.

Now that the FIGMENT NYC weekend is closing in, there are opportunities to help every day!

If you want to come out and lend a hand this week fill out this form with your availability, skills, and interests and we'll connect you with a project that can use your help.

If you have any questions or just want to say hi, email [email protected] 

If you'd like to keep abreast of volunteer opportunities in the future, fill out this general volunteer form


The FAST (Figment Art Support Team) volunteers are the team that works directly with our curators and artists during the weekend festival. We're looking for a few more friendly faces to handle tasks like artist check-in at Headquarters, roaming with curators to check on artists all over the island, and generally making the artists' experience more pleasant. If you have wondered what it's like to be one of our curators or even considered joining the team, this is a good place to start. Contact Lisa at [email protected] to get more information or to sign up!


For 2015, the City of Dreams Committee selected TWO winners: Organic Growth by Izaskun Chinchilla Architects and Billion Oyster by BANG Studio. The Pavilions are being built in many stages on and off the island, all of which need helping hands along the way. Below find the volunteer sign-up forms for each individual pavilion. The links also have info about schedules of work calls and descriptions of the tasks needed. For more general info about these incredible works of art, click here.

Our F&C team will be on the Island every Friday in May as well as some other dates TBA. Fill out this sign-up form if you are interested; we are particularly looking for volunteers who have at least a little experience with (or a lot of enthusiasm for learning) construction skills!
