Dear Theatre Without Borders network members,
is an online “knowledge commons by and for the entire theatre community”, a place where you can join a range of conversations by and about theatre makers, like yourself. Theatre Without Borders
is thrilled to link up with HowlRound to support connections between artists nationally and globally.
The HowlRound Map is an ever-growing, user-generated directory for theatre artists of all kinds from all over the world. Similar to our own Theatre Without Borders Map
, the HowlRound Map’s purpose is to make artists more available to each other. On the World Theatre Map, you can see what theatre is happening around the globe on any given day, you can search for artists using a variety of categories and tools, and you can add your own events and resources. Like Wikipedia, anyone can add information and edit the Map. Currently, the project is in English, Spanish, and soon to be in French. As you will see, The Map already features thousands of people, organizations, and performances around the world.
To start, create a profile for yourself and your affiliate organizations. This way anyone searching the Map can easily connect with you and attend your events. When you create your profile, be sure to include Theatre Without Borders as an Affiliation.
HowlRound also welcomes you to author blog posts and articles for their commons. To find more information about that, please visit http://howlround.com/participate, or get in touch with me directly.
Meanwhile, our Theatre Without Borders Map is still alive and well! With its focus on grassroots artist-to-artist connection on the themes of social engagement, peacebuilding, and empowerment, the Theatre Without Borders Map will continue to help you make connections artist-to-artist and people-to-people. HowlRound’s Map offers you a way to post your profile and inform a larger community about what you are doing.
As a Theatre Without Borders Next-Gen Member and a HowlRound World Theatre Map Ambassador, I am working to expand the categories on the Map to be as inclusive and useful as possible. Any questions or comments are very much appreciated and can be posted in the Map’s forum or sent to me directly.
I look forward to seeing you on the Map!
