FIGMENT DC is a free interactive art festival that catalyzes and celebrates an abundance of creativity and passion, challenging artists and our communities to find new ways to create, share, think, and dream.

The FIGMENT project (started and headquartered in NYC but with participating citiesĀ all over the US and around the world) is entirely volunteer-run,Ā meaning every single person who organizes, promotes, plans, and brings artĀ is doing it for free.

I love this event because itĀ inspires true human connection unhindered by corporate sponsorship or financial incentive. I joined FIGMENT DC on its inaugural launch in 2012;Ā even before I created my own interactive project for it, I was inspired by the sheer punk attitude of “forĀ the community, by the community” and was happy to be part of the grassroots effort to make art free again. I don’t have an abundanceĀ of free time (who does?) but when I have it, I give it to projects like this.

Oh, and this is classified under ‘branding’ not because I designed the brand (I do not have that honor) but for representingĀ the existing brandĀ in our city-specific outreach.
