FIGMENT Boston catalyzes and celebrates an abundance of creativity and passion, challenging artists and our communities to find new ways to create, share, think, and dream.
FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. 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.
FIGMENT Boston 2016 is coming up this weekend on Saturday 11am-11pm and Sunday 12pm-6pm on the Rose Kennedy Greenway. Expect to see interactive, family-friendly art and performances both days and an after dark dance party with light projects on Saturday night.
