FIGMENT Reminders

To make sure you and all other visitors have a fun and safe experience, please keep the following in mind:

  • It is NOT SAFE to CLIMB the art

  • YOUR child = YOUR responsibility

  • TREAT the art like it was your HOME

  • It is NEVER "just you" doing it!

  • THINK before you ACT

  • Make the art look even BETTER for the NEXT VISITOR

WANT TO HELP?

We invite people to sign up to volunteer to help at the event, and sign up for our email list for continued opportunities to help out throughout the year. If you enjoy your experiences at FIGMENT, consider joining the FIGMENT 100 or make a one-time donation! FIGMENT is entirely run by volunteers and paid for by direct support from the community!

IMPORTANT NOTES:

LEAVE NO TRACE: We adhere to a "Leave No Trace" ethic, and ask you to do the same. If you bring it with you, either bring it back or make sure it gets into a trash receptacle.

NO TRANSACTIONS: One of our goals is to create a social and creative experience uninterrupted by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. FIGMENT does not sell anything on the Greenway, and does not allow commerce of any kind.
