FIGMENT Oakland is a free, inclusive, participatory arts event held in multiple cities and drawing tens of thousands of participants each year. FIGMENT's mission is to offer free, family-friendly and participatory art to entire communities.
FIGMENT is a forum for the creation and display of participatory and interactive art by emerging artists across disciplines. FIGMENT began in July 2007 as a free, one-day participatory arts event on Governors Island in New York Harbor with over 2,600 participants. Since then, FIGMENT has grown significantly each year in number of projects, duration, participants, volunteers, fundraising capability, exhibitions, locations, overall level of commitment and participation, and public support.
Your Tax Deductible Donations Make FIGMENT Oakland Happen! FIGMENT Oakland is a free public event run by a staff of passionate volunteers. We’re scrappy, lean, and DIY. We keep our budget low due to generous donations of time, energy, and supplies by our artists, volunteers, and community benefactors. However, there are some budget line items that need to be paid in cash. For these expenses, we rely on financial contributions from individuals like you. Without these financial contributions, our event simply would not take...
Yes! We know you’re excited for our September 29th event. We are too. But did you know that we also run a FREE children's summer art class series? Presented along with Oakland Parks, Recreation & Youth Development, this will be our second summer bringing arts education to school age kids in Mosswood Park.
