FIGMENT San Diego Cancelled for 2018 • Returning in 2019

FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. For one day this summer, it will transform Chicano Park in San Diego, CA into a large-scale collaborative artwork – and then disappear.

Cancelled for 2018 • Returning in 2019

LEAVE NO TRACE: We adhere to a “Leave No Trace” ethic, and ask you to do the same. If you bring it with you, either bring it back or make sure it gets into a trash receptacle.

NO TRANSACTIONS: One of our goals is to create a social and creative experience uninterrupted by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. FIGMENT does not sell anything on the site, and does not allow commerce of any kind.

SHARE YOUR PHOTOS AND VIDEO: Your photos can help us promote and fundraise for FIGMENT next year! Please tag your Flickr photos and YouTube videos as “FIGMENTSANDIEGO2018″ or send links to sandiego@figmentproject.org. Full credit will be given each time your work is used.

PROJECT SUBMISSIONS: Our call for artists' link will be open soon. If you choose not to register your project, we invite you to bring it, but it will not appear on any maps or schedules, will not receive dedicated placement, must be able to be carried or wheeled onto the site without a vehicle, and cannot use power from the site. If you have any questions, please contact us. If you are an artist and have submitted your project, many of your questions may be answered on our Artist FAQ page.
