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.
Support the Culture of the Commons
By contributing, you help HowlRound continue to engage more than 350,000 annual users through online knowledge platforms about the latest theories and practices to advance the health and impact of the not-for-profit theatre.
HowlRound has four full-time staff who serve an average of 65,000 people per month maintaining HowlRound’s knowledge platforms consisting of: an online journal, blog and criticism, a New Play Map, a livestreaming TV channel, twelve Commons Producers throughout the country studying and reporting back on fourteen playwright residencies, in-person convenings, and the Weekly Howl Twitter conversation on #howlround.
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.
