ALPHA: April 20-23, 2023

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 a creator. 

We are inspired by Burning Man and follow the 11 Principles of FIGMENT based on the 10 Principles of Burning Man.
