FIGMENT demonstrates what the arts can be: participatory, bursting with creativity, and completely free. It aims to take art out of the galleries and put it in the hands of the public – providing opportunities for emerging and established artists of all mediums, skill levels and ages and in these trying economic times, a fun and free event for attendees.

WE INVITE YOU TO JO IN US AS WE BRING THIS EVENT TO LONG ISLAND!

As ever, FIGMENT remains a free, community-based arts event run entirely by volunteers. Everything you see at FIGMENT is born from the simple desire to share imagination with each other and the public.

We seek to build a team of people who have a PASSION FOR ART and want to help foster the artistic community on Long Island.

FIGMENT can provide a great opportunity to develop skills or learn new ones and it makes a great addition to any resume!

---------------

FIGMENT began in 2007 when a group of New Yorkers came together to create a new kinds of arts event – a celebration of participatory arts and culture where anything was possible!

What started as a one-day event with over 2,600 participants has grown rapidly - now hosting approximately 15,000 participants who interact with 400 art projects over a 3-day weekend. By 2009, there was an addition of a summer long 16 piece sculpture garden and an 18-hole artist created mini golf course. In 2010, FIGMENT Boston was born and this past summer expanded with events taking place in Jackson, MI and Detroit.

Now in it's 5th year, FIGMENT (recently named Best Arts Festival by Village Voice magazine) keeps on growing in the number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, locations and overall level of commitment and public support!
