FIGMENT Toronto returns July 26-27, 2014

FIGMENT Toronto is returning for our second annual free participatory art event on July 26-27. For one weekend we transform Olympic Island into a large scale, collaborative artwork – and then it’s gone! As always, the question FIGMENT asks is, “What Are You Bringing?”

FIGMENT provides the space; you provide the spark. Whether you want to submit a project, volunteer at the event, or just come out to the Island to release your inner child and pARTicipate, YOU make the magic happen!

At FIGMENT we invite you to make something, create something, collaborate, and play – to make something that gets people to interact, to participate with what you bring, and with each other. It can be as simple as a smile, some bubbles, or a song – or you can go big with interactive installations and performance pieces. At FIGMENT we welcome works in every conceivable category: sculpture, installation, performance, games, workshops and more. We can’t wait to see what figments arise from your imagination!

For information and to submit a project.

FIGMENT is a grass-roots effort entirely organized and run by volunteers. If you would like to help in creating a fantastic event on the Island while making new friends, we would love to have you come play with us! Click here to Volunteer!

FIGMENT is produced by hundreds volunteers who donate thousands of hours, but we do have expenses and will gratefully accept donations of any size, to help in bringing participatory art to Toronto and to showcase local artists to our 10,000 event attendees.

Keep an eye on here for more info in the coming weeks. In the meantime like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.
