Welcome to HowlRound
We’re a free and open platform
for theatremakers worldwide.
We amplify progressive, disruptive ideas about theatre and facilitate connection between diverse practitioners. We function as a “commons”—a social structure that invites open participation around shared values. All of the content (essays, videos, podcasts) on HowlRound comes from the theatre community who chooses to participate—that means you!
Lists of specially curated content by members of our community.
Civic Practice, Theatre, and Arts-Based, Community Led Transformation
A batch of articles that investigate, in their own ways, questions such as: what we mean by engagement; who is changing what for whom when we talk about ‘change’ work; and how theatre, democracy and aesthetics can intersect within a framework of justice-aimed values and intentions.
This is America
A collection of works that help to explore the beauty, dysfunction and opportunity housed in this creative form called Theatre. America has an opportunity to be, support, and change into this.
Thriving as a Recent Graduate
I worry that I'll lose the thrill and merriment I felt while pursuing a degree, so I ground myself in these articles. Definitely read and participate in the comments.

We are here, we have always been here, and #WeWillNotBeErased.
