FIGMENT DERBY - ON THE ROAD
If you are a creative person or group and you have ideas you would like to test with a live audience, old projects that could do with a new spin, present an All Time New Piece of Wonder, or just have an something in mind that you think it could be fun to try, we would love to hear from you.
Just get in touch and we will discuss how we can bring your project to any of the FIGMENT Derby pop up events.
9 Things Project Creators Should Know about FIGMENT:
FIGMENT is not your typical art event. Here are 9 key things to keep in mind before submitting for FIGMENT Derby:
- Everyone is welcome. Artists and participants of any age or experience are welcome to be a part of FIGMENT.
- All art is participatory. All of the art at FIGMENT is participatory. We look for art that encourages people to play, dance, sing, create, engage, experiment, and explore their environment.
- No sales, logos, or advertising. The art at FIGMENT is a gift from the artist to the FIGMENT community. Nothing is for sale at FIGMENT. At FIGMENT, interactions between people are not mediated by commercial transactions of any kind. There is no advertising, nothing is for sale, and no one asks for donations.
- We’re outdoors in a public area. FIGMENT takes place outdoors in a public area, so your project should be designed to withstand the weather and the public.
- We leave no trace. Your project can not leave any trace or mark on the site and you must be prepared to completely remove and clean up after your project.
- We’re all volunteer. FIGMENT is an all-volunteer organisation. Ideally, you should be able to install, supervise, and deinstall your project by yourself but let us know if you think you will need help.
- FIGMENT is a completely free event. There is no charge for anybody to be a part of the event.
- We have no artists grants. The event does not have a budget for project grants.
- We're in other cities, too! There are FIGMENT Weekend events happening around the globe, and we encourage artists to bring their projects to multiple cities! Find out where else FIGMENT is happening.
