WASHINGTON -- This Saturday's FIGMENT DC will bring together an arts community that didn't know they were artists. The no-money, no-alcohol, no-drugs, everyone-participates event will feature more than 75 artists doing their thing, with the hope you'll join in.
The first D.C. event, FIGMENT has had successful events in New York City, Boston, Jackson, Miss., and more. Event producer Patty Simonton is hoping the event will be a networking event for the creative community. "We believe that friends are everywhere if you're ready to meet them."
Other than an open mind, participants are not required to bring anything. "If you're going to bring more than one thing, bring something to share. A smile, a game, music, toys, costumes, etc."
The first FIGMENT DC will take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Yards Park. For a partial list of participating artists, visit dc.figmentproject.org.
