FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines.

Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support.
