Since 1993, HERE has supported multidisciplinary work that does not fit into a conventional programming agenda. HERE's aesthetic represents the independent, the innovative, and the organization has developed such acclaimed works as Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues; Basil Twist's Symphonie Fantastique; Trey Lyford & Geoff Sobelle's all wear bowlers; and Young Jean Lee's Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven.

HERE supports the work of mid-career artists working in hybrid theatrical forms through commissions, subsidized performance and rehearsal space, works-in-progress, workshop productions and fully-produced works. A primary focus of HERE is the work of its HARP (HERE Artistic Residency Program) Artists, who partake of a one- to three-year residency.

The New York Times has called HERE "one of the most unusual arts spaces in New York and possibly the model for the cutting-edge arts spaces of tomorrow." HERE aims to integrate art into daily life and engage the community's needs and interests on as many different levels as possible.
