A Taste of Things to Come… FIGMENT Toronto 2014

With only a couple of days left before the first ferry brings all you happy-go-lucky art lovers over to Olympic island for Figment 2014, I think it’s high time I fill you in on some of the magic we have in store…

Nathalie Quagliotto is bringing Maturity Correlation—a swing set that invokes nostalgia while creating a collaborative play situation..

This is just a sneak peak, in no particular order, and with MANY more on the roster! Now that you know some of what’s in store—What are you bringing?? 

Working on this project, with such an epic team of wonderful people, has been a privilege from the very beginning. As with all undertakings, there have been stresses and trials, and every moment has been well worth it because of the connections and friendships made along the way. Long may it continue!
