Howl! Arts Collective
Howl! Arts Collective is a Montreal-based collective of artists, activists, and cultural workers who use artistic expression to work towards social justice. Through music, dance, and spoken-word, Howl! aims to “challenge corporate-directed musical modes by celebrating grassroots artists actively building bridges between the arts and activism for social justice.”
Recent initiatives include the album releases of Artists Against Apartheid and Artists Against Austerity, compilations of solo performances from Montreal musicians. In April, the collective hosted their annual festival and this year’s theme celebrated art and revolution with six days of movie screenings, concerts, conferences, exhibitions, and radio broadcasts. Howl! has also begun independently releasing “sonic projects”, another branch of activity that will contribute to their creative social justice agenda.
