OUR PROGRAMS

Horror DragCHALLENGES
Challenges are a platform for work that’s been developed using an FGP specific prompt. The shifting guidelines, prompts, and forced collaborations aim to jumpstart artist creation.
 
Get Involved in an FGP Challenge by first signing up on our mailing list and keep an eye out for our call for artists. Then simply submit here for any prompt that you’re jazzed about and we’ll get back to you from there! Check out the archive to see past examples.
