Who: Anyone and everyone is welcome, especially those who may or may not consider themselves creators, makers, artists, builders.
What: "Where failure is not an option... it is a requirement"- Figment Executive Director David Koren.
ALPHA was launched in 2013 as an event that gives participants a safe space to experiment with interactive and participatory projects. ALPHA is a a place to launch new projects, to fail, to collaborate, to improve and refine existing projects, to dive in and create something new and unexpected, to reinvent yourself completely as an creator.
We are inspired by Burning Man and follow the 11 Principles of FIGMENT based on the 10 Principles of Burning Man.
