FIGMENT demonstrates what the arts can be: participatory, bursting with creativity and completely free, born from the desire to share imagination and invention between artists and the public.
FIGMENT started in NYC in 2007 and Boston was the first city outside of NY in 2010. Over the past 4 years, FIGMENT has helped bring hundreds of interactive art projects to downtown Boston, inspiring thousands of people to broaden their definition of art by breaking down the wall between spectator and artist and encouraging everyone to participate. FIGMENT is an annual event that can happen anywhere people are inspired to bring it and now FIGMENT has expanded to include cities across the U.S. and abroad.
FIGMENT is free to the public and yet non-commercial, independently produced by volunteers and artists. FIGMENT is able to exist and grow because of your support! Let’s work together to create community through art! We welcome your contributions, in whatever form: submitting art, making a donation toward our necessary event costs, or distributing flyers to help publicize the event. Please get involved today!
