Figment Arts is an arts organisation based in the South East with 15 years experience.  We work with artists and communities to amplify their voices.  We value the arts and creativity as a vital part of what makes a healthy and strong society.

We run artist support programmes and work in moving image, visual art, installation and film production.

Art is for everyone; at Figment Arts we strive to affect a positive change in society with the work we do, representing people with honesty and respect.

Figment Arts is a Community Interest Company.  It is a not-for-profit organisation guided by strong principles of equality and access to the arts.  Our work is socially engaged at every level.  We are an artist led organisation and we have an advisory board who offer their knowledge and expertise on a voluntary basis.

We are a small organisation, adaptable and resourceful.  We keep our overheads to a minimum and focus our resources on action.
