Join The Dance Parade Team on Sunday, June 10th, for a potluck picnic! It will be a way to enjoy each other’s company in the outdoors surrounded by art in every direction as well as supporting a fellow non-profit organization that endorses a similar sentiment of expression that in many ways parallels the mission of Dance Parade! Please RSVP so that we have an idea of how many people we will be expecting!
- Time: Noon
- Location: We will be meeting in front of the first yellow house in the parade grounds (off ferry, up the hill to the left)
- What to bring: Chips, soft drinks, macaroni salad, sandwiches or whatever you like!
***New Dance Parade Volunteers are certainly welcome!***
What is FIGMENT?
FIGMENT is a non-profit project that promotes “participatory art”. In parallel to Dance Parade, FIGMENT has grown in popularity over the past 5 years and is an all-volunteer organization. The FIGMENT festival takes over Governor’s Island starting June 10th and incorporates many of the participatory, environmental and non-commercial principles of Burning Man. It is now in three other U.S. cities in addition to New York.
