** Silent Auction items list coming soon - got something to donate to the auction? Please get in touch! figmenttoartparty@gmail.com

**Costumes encouraged! Express your creativity - it's an Art Party, so why not arrive as Living Art? Here at FIGMENT, we often state the goal of "breaking down the walls between performer and spectator" -- what better way to do that than to truly become a part of the art? And, remember to wear your dancing shoes!

** VOLUNTEER! Want to help out? We'll be needing volunteers for fun teams like Decor, Door, and more! Get in touch: figmenttoartparty@gmail.com -- we'll be hosting some pre-event crafternoons/evenings in advance of June 7th and will also need lots of hands on deck for the big party. It's gonna be a really fun, fab group to work with!

What is FIGMENT? FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It's a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. FIGMENT began in 2007 in NYC and is now happening in cities all over the globe. In 2013, the FIGMENT Toronto team brought FIGMENT to Olympic Island for the very first time & we're back again for Year Two! 

This July 26-27, FIGMENT will transform Olympic Island into a playground of large-scale collaborative artwork -- and then, in a flash, it's gone. We invite participants, artists, children, grownups, doers, dreamers, makers, and the whole world to come experience art, community, and creativity through play.

Participatory art cannot happen without YOU the participant so please be part of FIGMENT's future, and purchase your ticket today!

What are you bringing?

This is a Leave No Trace (LNT) event! For more information on LNT and the Eleven Principles of Figment, please visit: http://www.figmentproject.org/principles

100% of all funds raised will be used to support artists at our FREE July Event on Toronto Island!
