FIGMENT Chicago 2016 is just around the corner...
Wait, what happened to 2015? Scheduling conflicts and life changes, to keep it simple. Your core organizers were all in agreement: We want to live up to our strong history. We had a sizzling year in 2013 in Garfield Park (epic fire performance + 52 art projects). And the magical moments of 2014 in Jefferson Park burn bright in our memory (2 “no fuego” dragons + 31 additional art projects). Now, we are looking forward to an epic 2016 event.
HELP US spread our FIGMENT branches and find partners to form a canopy of interactive art at a unique Chicago space. (Hint: We’re looking!)
