The Loretto Theater
at The Sheen Center for Thought and Culture
18 Bleecker St
FGP’s first 10 hour theater festival!
We will gather a diverse group of artists for a cup of coffee in the morning and peruse the New York Times. Our artists will select stories that inspire original work, rehearse during the day, and reconvene that night to present FGP Nightly News. Hosted by our own FGP News Team, the night will explore how artists synthesize the form of printed media into creative expression.

HELP SUPPORT FGP!
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!

CALLING IMPROVISERS AND FAST CREATORS OF EVERY MEDIUM!
Fresh Ground Pepper is embarking on it’s first ever 10 hour theater festival. We are seeking submissions from artists of all mediums who are excited by the idea of creating quickly! All mediums encouraged to apply!
Artists will gather on the morning of Thursday November 13th to peruse the New York Times over a cup of coffee or tea. Each group or participating artists will select a story or section of the paper and have between 11am-5pm to create a brand new piece based on their selected material. FGP will provide a half hour at the new and vibrant Loretto Theater in the Sheen Center for Thought and Culture. The audience will then gather that same evening to see the news of that presented as they have never seen before.
Hosted by our own FGP News Team, the night will explore how artists synthesize the form of printed media into creative expression.
