“The Howl! Festival’s mission is to engage and build a strong global arts community based in the Lower East Side in order to create a better place for us all to live and create and flourish. The Howl! Festival uses poetry, music, dance, theater, fine art, popular culture, in fact all means of artistic expression and new technologies to engage and incite people to connect with the arts. And we give young people and the public the tools to join in the creative process and take action to experience first hand the high value of a creative life. We are creative, effective, free-spirited artists and audiences who expect and demand a high quality of cultural life in our neighborhood. We continue the powerful legacy of our mentors and artistic gurus. We claim our right to be creative!”
