Lee McIntyre co-founded Howl Projects, a multi-strand creative project producing events aimed to promote creative social cohesion through performance, publication and the visual arts.Coming predominantly from a D.I.Y punk background, in his early twenties Lee spent his time staging shows in living rooms, kitchens, garages and backrooms of pubs. His interest in creating posters and zines at this time led to a longstanding involvement in the visual arts.
After studying Fine Art in the Midlands, Lee returned to his native Cornwall to engage with the county’s unique creative microcosm. This led him to the Fish Factory Art Space where he became heavily involved in programming and curation of it’s challenging and engaging agenda.
Lee’s continued work with international musicians, comedians and artists on distinct and socially motivated projects in the South West has led to the formation of Howl Projects. Based at Howl Coffee House in Penryn this new venture intends to make an impact on the area’s cultural landscape.
