Once we made the choice to produce our plays not to recoup an investment but to recoup some corner of the universe for our understanding and enlargement, we entered the same world as the university, the museum, the church and became, like them, an instrument of civilization. 
—Zelda Fichandler

Support the Culture of the Commons
By contributing, you help HowlRound continue to engage more than 350,000 annual users through our online platform and in person gatherings. HowlRound has five full-time staff who serve an average of 45,000 people per month through continually stewarding and improving our tools: 

  • an online journal HowlRound
  • a livestreaming television network HowlRound TV
  • a user generated directory of the global theatre community, The World Theatre Map 
  • in person convenings that discuss the field's most pressing issues

How is this possible?
The theatre community contributes knowledge, energy, and passion as content (in the form of an article for the journal, a blog post, a request that an event be livestreamed on HowlRound TV, etc.). HowlRound invests in and designs open source content delivery systems to share that knowledge with anyone interested, at no cost, with no barriers to access.
