An awesome event happened a couple days ago here in Chicago. A Figment event!

FIGMENT is a free, inclusive, participatory arts event held in multiple cities and drawing tens of thousands of participants each year. FIGMENT's mission is to offer free, family-friendly and participatory art to entire communities.

Figment is a non-profit and doesn't accept corporate support instead they rely on donations and volunteers. 

I love their whole philosophy and genuine love for inclusivity and participatory creativity for all!

They organize under 11 principles you can find more details here.

DECOMMODIFICATION
INCLUSION
SELF-EXPRESSION

.....Ideas I can get behind!
