FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support.

And just like that, it’s Spring again! Our team is back in the swing of things, and we’re really excited for what this year will bring. More opportunities for everyone to unleash their inner artist and build community with their neighbors, all while enjoying time together in the sun. FIGMENT is completely free and open to all. Yet it is far from free to produce. So to help make all of this possible once again, we’re asking for your support. Will you please make a contribution to support FIGMENT DC today?
