We are excited to invite you to our third annual FIGMENT Project Global Fundraiser and Masquerade Ball on 11/11. Celebrate FIGMENT and raise funds for our 2020 season.
11/11 for 2020. Coincidence? We think not. Our theme this year is SYNCHRONICITY: that thing we humans do when we find meaning and causality in unrelated events.
When we create art, we create meaning from circumstance. We carve out causality from randomness. We make things matter.
Join us and celebrate that meaningful coincidence; embrace that wink and nod from the universe; and clap your butterfly wings at our 2019 MIRROR / MIRROR FIGMENT Fundraiser & Masquerade Ball.
Over the past 13 years, FIGMENT has hosted 73 free interactive arts events
in 20 cities
in 5 countries
on 4 continents
and with your help we can continue to grow and expand
Monday, November 11 / 8-11:11pm
Featuring: Interactive Art Performances / DJ / Small Bites / Raffle / Silent Auction / Mask Making / Photo Booth / Cash Bar
Synchronized Outfits, Butterflies, Fairytales, Clones, Anomalies, Singularities, or Your Interpretation of the Theme. Wear a mask or make one with our talented on-site artists.
