Our Team

FIGMENT is run by a dedicated group of volunteer planners and staff. Our rewards are in communities of artists coming together to create exciting new works, kids exploring their creative impulses, and the public engaging in participatory art–often for the first time in their lives.

    FIGMENT Dallas helps create a space for everyone to feel welcome, creative, and loved. Racism, sexism, ableism, ageism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia will not be tolerated during our interactive art events.

    Behave with beauty, connect with intention. We are obsessed with CONSENT. Always ASK before touching anyone or their costumes at our events. Anyone who cannot follow this simple rule will be escorted to the sidewalk. All aspects of the outdoor areas will be handicap accessible this March at WAAS Gallery. Restrooms on both floors are gender neutral. Please do not climb on any of the artwork, nor bring animals. Children are welcome at all our events. We do understand dancing is a contact sport, but play nice.

    [selected artists were curated & invited to donate to the 5x7 art race sale, or the silent auction for three-dimensional works for March. our 3rd event for 2018 at the park in October will be open call to artists.] for more info on submitting interactive art for our future events visit: http://dallas.figmentproject.org/

    Art is not a simple commodity, it can be an Experience that is shared.
