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.
VOLUNTEER with us if you want to work on fundraising efforts in 2015, or getting ready for 2016.
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!)
