HOWL! Arts Project

With a howl, a song, a slam,

a dance, a film or an evening of theatrical madness, HOWL! Arts Project (H.A.P.) is a call to arms across time and across boundaries of culture, taste, and creative expression. In a world connected like never before, the East Village is a symbol of untamed creativity and a place to engage and build a strong global arts community.

A month-long series of non-stop music, film, theater, performance art, burlesque and drag entertainment, H.A.P. was conceived as a vehicle to benefit HELP (Howl! Emergency Life Project), the newly established emergency assistance fund supporting East Village artists of all disciplines, which also provides all services offered by parent administrator: The Actors Fund.. H.A.P. puts the "hap" in "happening" with an electrifying series of ticketed events taking place at a variety of downtown venues throughout September. In an ongoing effort to support HELP, H.A.P. presents wildly diverse programming at affordable costs to the whole family. Artists of all disciplines impart talent and pleasure galore as they showcase developing and finished work in traditional and experimental theatrical productions, gallery offerings and more.
