PAH empowers artists and aids them in their journeys of personal development and artistic advancement by offering valuable resources and opportunities that nurture artist’s growth as individuals, as leaders, as organizers, as curators and as artists.

Jennifer Free presenting her first performance art piece ever at one of Performance Art Houston's reoccurring PERFORMANCE ART NIGHTs. Performance Art Night usually happens at Houston's only Performance Artist owned venue, Notsuoh and features performance art work from 8-15 curated performance artists in one night. Performance Art Night was created to be a place where performance artists can share freely and often— without the weighty restrictions that curated or themed shows often bring along with them. It aspires to be a place where experimentation is welcome and boundaries are pushed! It was also created to strengthen and ground the performance art scene in Houston— by inspiring more artists to experiment with performance as well as by giving Houston audiences more diverse performance art experience. So far it has birthed new artists, a collective, countless new works, lots of fun, and many good stories. Profits from the $5 cover go towards paying for professional documentation for the artists and nurtures performance art in Houston.
