甚麼是FIGMENT 11項原則?

(For English, please scroll down)
FIGMENT 的11項原則參考自其他社區導向的藝術活動,11項原則包括:

1. 親身參與:個人或社會轉化必須依賴親身參與,而我們相信動手玩、動身試便能達到親身參與以至轉化的目的。

2. 創意去商品化:FIGMENT 致力建立一個不受適業贊助、交易及廣告左右的創意平台,我們相信不需要以消費代替參與經驗。

3. 歡迎任何人:每一個人都可以是 FIGMENT 的一部份,我們沒有預置門檻,只要是願意參與和一同享受,我們也無任歡迎。

4.尊重自由表達:每位創作者或每個創作團隊都有其獨特之處,透過創意轉化表達出來成為一個給予他人的禮物。同樣,創作者亦應專重來訪參與者的權利與自由。

5. 發掘內在潛能:FIGMENT 鼓勵個人探索、挖掘和強化自我的潛能。

6. 給社會的禮物:FIGMENT 是本著義務性質,回饋社會的一份禮物。藉著參與的創作者、活動籌備小組和義工的無償付出,我們希望每位來訪參與者同樣視這個活動為一份著重人與人交流的禮物。

7. 共同付出:我們希望締造一個讓個人能產生內在創造轉化的環境,而這個環境必須藉由具創意的協作與合作。

8. 共建公民環境:每一位 FIGMENT 的參與者均有責任為其他參與者建立具公民意識的友善環境。

9. 環境無負擔:我們承諾活動過後將不會為活動地方造成負擔,例如垃圾或留下不可復元的痕跡。

10. 表裡如一: 局限創意的原因常常來自「真正的自己」與「希望向世界呈現的自己」之間的差異。打破這個障礙,讓我們藉這個創作平台的機會,真摰地以創作與人交流。

11. 飲水思源: 我們相信飲水思源的重要性,我們珍惜並且感謝活動內外曾經協助的朋友,以及整個社區。

What are FIGMENT's 11 Principles?

Drawing inspiration from other community-based arts events, the development, production, and experience of FIGMENT are guided by these 11 principles:

PARTICIPATION
Transformative change, whether in the individual or in society, can occur only through deeply personal participation. We achieve being through doing. Everyone is invited to work. Everyone is invited to play.

DECOMMODIFICATION
FIGMENT seeks to create social environments that are unmediated by commercial sponsorships, transactions, or advertising. We will not substitute consumption for experience.

INCLUSION
Anyone may be a part of FIGMENT; no prerequisites exist for participation except willingness to work and play. We welcome and respect the stranger.

SELF-EXPRESSION
Each individual and collaborating group has unique qualities, and through self-expression can offer a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of others.

SELF-RELIANCE
FIGMENT encourages the individual to discover, exercise and rely on his or her inner resources.

GIVING
FIGMENT is devoted to acts of gift giving and volunteering. FIGMENT itself is a gift from volunteer artists and event staff, who hope that each participant brings an attitude of giving. Giving does not imply a return or an exchange for something of equal value.

COMMUNAL EFFORT
We seek to create an environment ripe for each individual to achieve personal artistic transformation — but the creation of such an environment can be done only through creative cooperation and collaboration.

CIVIC RESPONSIBILITY
Each participant in FIGMENT is responsible for creating a civil environment for all other participants. We endeavor to produce this event in a way that fosters a civil society and that is socially responsible.

LEAVE NO TRACE
Taking everything with you and throwing it away is a great start, but it is only the beginning. We have to consider the long-term impact of everything we do, and continually find ways to decrease our impact on the natural environment.

IMMEDIACY
Too often the limit for creative expression is the barrier between our inner selves and the selves that we present to the world. By breaking down that barrier, we can gain a profound appreciation for the opportunities that lie in each time and place.

GRATITUDE
We believe it is important to remind ourselves where we come from, and to appreciate what has been given to us to get us to where we are. We are not entitled to anything, and approach our relations to others from a place of gratitude for their efforts.
