Our vision is to advance, inspire and expand our community narrative, one story at a time – and in doing so, preserve and promote the ancient art of storytelling in a way that enriches modern life, allowing and encouraging people to be vulnerable and present in ways that are crucial to the full expression of our humanity.
Portland Story Theater builds community and promotes understanding and radical empathy by giving voice to the real, true stories of ordinary people.
