BENEFITING: FIGMENT Project, Inc.
FIGMENT is an explosion of creative energy. It’s a free, annual celebration of participatory art and culture where everything is possible. On May 13th, 2017, it will transform Chicano Park in San Diego, CA into a large-scale collaborative work of art– and then disappear for it's 4th year in America's Finest City. FIGMENT can only become a reality through the contributions of those who attend and participate, and via the generosity of our donors. This Crowd Rise fundraiser is being run to gather enough funds to sufficiently cover costs associated with producing and facilitating this event in conjunction with our hosts at National Historical Landmark, Chicano Park (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicano_Park). VISION We seek to empower everyone to create and share, transforming our communities and our society through participation and creativity. MISSION Our mission is to create participatory and inclusive cultural events and experiences that build community and inspire personal and social transformation. VALUES We believe fundamentally that every human being is equally important, and that a just society is one that makes room for the participation and expression of everyone. In order to create a world in which this is possible, we have adopted eleven founding principles that summarize our values: Participation, Decommodification, Inclusion, Expression, Self-Reliance, Giving, Communal Effort, Civic Responsibility, Leave No Trace, Immediacy, and Gratitude.
