You're invited to learn about FIGMENT NYC and how you can get involved

In September, RIOC announced a big win. FIGMENT NYC, a popular annual art project, will leave Governors Island for Roosevelt Island's Lighthouse Park in 2019. On the 23rd, its leaders invite you to get acquainted and, maybe, grab a chance to get your hands in the clay.

"Join us for a community meeting to talk about FIGMENT NYC, on Roosevelt Island June 1-2, 2019," said a spokesperson.

"We want you to be a part of it... as a team member, an artist, a supporter, a participant! FIGMENT is a large-scale participatory arts festival that started in 2007, has happened 69 times in 20 cities around the world, and is created by you! Join us to learn more and to see how you can be a part of it!"
