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.)
You’re welcome to show up weekend of the event and come out and have fun with costumes, hoops, kites, games, and even your puppy, so long as he’s on a leash. At this time, since we’ve received our permit from the Capital Area National Park Service, and we want to stay on good terms with them, all unregistered projects may not include:
- Shade structures
- Electricity or Water
- Stage access
- Food, drink or alcohol for sale or distribution
- Corporate branding, flyer distribution, or anything for sale
- Hanging items from trees (not allowed) or attaching items to park infrastructure (also not allowed)
- Lengthy set-up time (more than 30 minutes)
- Special transport requirements for set-up or take-down
If your project has been accepted and you have questions about the logistics of the weekend, please contact your curator, keep your eyes open for email updates. Click here to see the list of this year’s artists!
