You know all about FIGMENT… You’re ready to dive in… but you still have some questions! Hopefully the below will answer everything, and feel free to email us at DET@figmentproject.org if you have additional questions.
What are the hours of FIGMENT?
FIGMENT is open:
Saturday, July 21: 12 noon – 6pm
Sunday, July 22: 12 noon – 6pm
Can I bring a car onto Belle Isle?
Yes. There is ample parking space on the island. We encourage visitors to park in the casino parking lot.
Can I bring my bike / roller blades onto Belle Isle?
Absolutely! The island is very bike/wheel friendly… but you can easily get around by foot if you prefer.
What if it rains?
FIGMENT is a rain or shine event. Some of the artwork is indoors, but if it looks like it’s drizzling, you may want to bring an umbrella or remember what it was like to be a kid and play in the rain.
How do I get to Belle Isle?
Check out our page on Getting There.
I didn’t submit my art / project before the deadline. Can I still bring it?
We would love you to bring your art and projects. However, please note that you cannot bring anything that needs to be staked into the ground, be connected to a power source, plotted on the map, or scheduled for a performance area. Our call for participation for those types of projects is open now. For more information on how to submit a project, please click here.
To have advance notice of submissions opening and deadlines for next year, please join our mailing list.
How can I find out what will be at FIGMENT?
You can look at (and print) an event map and schedule / list of projects and artists from our website in advance. Because we are a Leave No Trace event, we will not print individual maps or schedules for participants. If you are more comfortable with a map in your hand, you may want to print it out.
Is it really free?
Yes, FIGMENT is 100% free for everyone to participate and enjoy. We run entirely on donations, and we welcome any contribution you are able to make. If you would like to make a donation to FIGMENT DETROIT, click here.
What should I bring?
You should plan to bring water and a picnic, for sure. For other items, please see our What to Bring page!
