We're very happy to invite you to ALPHA 2014! ALPHA 2014 will be at Camp Ramblewood in Darlington, Maryland, USA, from April 25-27, 2014.
We had a blast last year at our first ALPHA... and we look forward to building on what we started and creating another awesome event that is all about bringing creative people together to make and share awesome projects. Full information on ALPHA is on the website.
We encourage experimentation! You can register your workshop, meet-up, performance, demonstration, installation, or whatever by following the link in the email you will receive after your purchase your tickets.
To appear on our map and event schedule, your project or event must be submitted by April 15, 2014. We can't wait to see what you're bringing!
Cabins and meal plans are on sale now, too... And those prices won't go up. So if you'd like to lock in your favorite cabin at Ramblewood for you and your friends, you can.
Once you purchase your ticket, you'll receive an email with the link to submit your project for ALPHA. Everyone is expected to bring a project of some kind. Please submit your project as soon as you can so we can figure out where everything goes, but certainly by April 17, 2014.
As ALPHA is an experiment, we welcome your thoughts, ideas, innovation, creativity, contribution, and passion... So please let us know your ideas for how to make the event as awesome as it can possibly be email@example.com!
We look forward to creating the fantastical with you at ALPHA 2014!
The FIGMENT DC 2013 map is now available. There will not be a bunch of maps all around the event so print a copy or download it to your mobile device.
IMPORTANT ADDRESS INFORMATION: We’ve noticed that there’s some sort of misinformation going around about the location for this year’s event. Please note that the address is NOT 1900 S St. SE. Please use “Anacostia Park, Section E, Washington, DC” as the address in your smartphone. The park is along the Anacostia Riverwalk Trail.
Bringing Art to FIGMENT?
Thank you to all of you who submitted your project for FIGMENT DC! We’re thrilled with the incredible variety and interactivity of your projects, and can’t wait to see you fill the fields and tree-filled spaces of Anacostia Park.
Did you miss the deadline? We still want you to join us at FIGMENT! After all, FIGMENT is all about Participation! (Really, it is. Check out our 11 Principles.)
