For the past 5 years, FGP has nurtured hundreds of artists and developing projects.
We are looking forward to continuing to offer our community a deadline, a guideline and a space as often as we can.
Fresh Ground Pepper exists because making art is not easy. We exist because the financial strain most artists experience will squelch their artistry. We exist because artists cannot create and edit at the same time. Space must be made for creation without a product in mind. We exist because ideas beget ideas. Collaboration is important on an individual level, but also on a process, career building level. We exist because art is worthy of celebration.

Helping artists is Fresh Ground Pepper’s mission.
Help us continue to expand our reach and bring in even more new work from artists all over the city this year!
