I’m writing a series of posts over at the FIGMENT Oakland blog! Here’s the first one.
What kind of experiences come to mind when you hear the words “art show” or “art event”?
Did you picture a stark gallery with white walls or a museum filled with precious objects that you aren’t allowed to go near or touch? Maybe a concert or performance where you have to sit still in a chair and you aren’t allowed to talk?
Let’s face it, what most of us think of as the usual “art experience” just isn’t very kid-friendly.
At FIGMENT, we aim to change that. We think that’s a big part of why kids and families love FIGMENT! We encourage families to attend with children of all ages. We think it’s the perfect place for the whole family: It’s purposefully inclusive, cost-free and totally interactive.
