How does FIGMENT engage the (local) community?

FIGMENT focuses primarily on participatory art, art that builds community through sharing, and gets people to interact with one another, talk to each other, create and share experiences together. By participating, we are building important connections and weaving the social fabric that creates community.

FIGMENT was started in New York in 2007 and has expanded to include cities both in the U.S. and abroad. FIGMENT is an event that can happen anywhere people are inspired to bring it! FIGMENT continues to expand its mission to offer free, family-friendly and participatory art to entire communities, removing the barriers of museum and gallery walls and entrance fees, blurring the lines between those who create and those who enjoy art.
