The Commons

Growing up, the public library was a place that allowed Polly Carl, Director & Editor of HowlRound: A Center for the Theater Commons, to find belonging and access imagination. This introduction to a commons model is something that she’s carried with her and influences all that she brings as a leader to the organization. The commons model is all about inclusivity. Carl honors and encourages this through her work at HowlRound.

Better Late than Never!

When asked to choose a problem for this Creative Community Fellowship, I chose an environmental issue. Living in an agricultural valley, ranchers buy hay that is bound by plastic twine. This twine accumulates quickly and the closest recycler of this material is 980 miles away (one way). Consequently, this plastic twine is everywhere: wrapped around farm equipment wheels, in burn piles, piled in corners of fields, in birds’ nests and left in ditches. Eventually, it ends up in landfills, burned into the atmosphere or just left out in the fields.
