Streetfilms: FIGMENT Festival on Governors Island

A couple of weekends ago, FIGMENT, a non-profit art and culture festival, held its 2008 event on Governors Island. Streetfilms contributor Nick Whitaker was there.

Partnering with Governors Island, the producers of FIGMENT hope to
increase the enjoyment of art by placing it in an under-utilized public
space just minutes from downtown.

FIGMENT is free to the public. More info, including submission guidelines and volunteer opportunities, is available here.
