FIGMENT Boston 2013
FIGMENT is a free, annual event that brings together the community and inspires all ages in the creation and celebration of art and a culture where everything is possible. With events in multiple cities drawing tens of thousands of participants each year, FIGMENT is a growing movement that seeks to broaden the definition of art, breakdown the wall between spectator and artist and encourage everyone to participate.
Saturday & Sunday, July 27 – 28, FIGMENT Boston returns to the Rose Kennedy Greenway for a weekend filled with interactive art, music, performance, and creativity. This event is free to the public and yet non-commercial, independently produced by volunteer staff and artists. FIGMENT Boston is an inclusive event. If you want to participate, you can submit an interactive art project or volunteer to help make FIGMENT Boston 2013 happen!
FIGMENT encourages you to stretch your boundaries! FIGMENT Boston offers opportunities for both emerging and established artists to showcase original works and create something that gets people to interact, to participate and collaborate with each other.
FIGMENT welcomes works in every imaginable medium including sculpture, installation, performance, music, workshops, games, experiences, site-specific pieces, social experiments, and anything else you can dream of. We invite any project that inspires visitors to participate and interact with art.
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 in FIGMENT, you are building important connections and weaving the social fabric that creates community.
Mark your calendars!
