The Dysfunctional Collective turns Nolan Park House 8B into a grab box of art, theater, music and dance. Stop by any weekend to hear a song, write a poem, see a play, learn to dance, solve a mystery, to make something new or just come and explore the house with us. For details on specific programming for each week, visit or stop by the house and pick up a program guide for more information.


Haunted Paper House
Weekends in October

Did you know there’s a Haunted House on Governors Island? A Haunted Paper House! And we need your help filling it up with all sorts of tricks and treats! Throughout October, the Paper House will return to House 8B in Nolan Park for a spooky month of ghosts, monsters, jack o’ lanterns and Halloween spirit – all made out of paper. Across two floors, we’re inviting artists and guests to help create and decorate uncanny attractions from paper, cardboard, crayons and more – including a parlor of ghosts, a monster lab, paper pumpkin carving and much, much more. It all leads up to a big party weekend on October 27-28, with costumes, stories, games and performances for trick-or-treaters of all ages
