FRESH WORKS! awards commissions to support the creation of new work by BlPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) transgender, gender-nonconforming, non-binary and queer artists: we present these new works at our annual FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL.

FRESH WORKS! commissions are awarded by invitation only: we are not accepting submissions at this time. Learn about submitting work to the FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL.

Fresh Meat Productions is thrilled to announce our 20th Anniversary FRESH WORKS! Commissioned Artists! We awarded commissioning grants to these five brilliant artists/ensembles to create new work: Angelica Medina + Jahaira Fajardo, Antoine Hunter, J Mase III, Lady Dane Figueroa Edidi, Mark Travis Rivera, and Randy Ford.

Fresh Meat Productions will present the world premieres of these commissioned works at our 20th Anniversary FRESH MEAT FESTIVAL of trans and queer performance (June 17-27 online + closed-captioned). Please join us!

Congratulations to these brilliant artists!
