Portland Story Theater Immigrant and Refugee Urban Tellers® Special Edition at The Old Church Concert Hall

Join Us

Beginning in the Spring of 2017, Portland Story Theater launched a special Immigrant | Refugee Edition of Urban Tellers®.

Since that time, we have produced 3 Immigrant | Refugee Editions and are producing another program in the Fall of 2018. Do you or someone you know want to participate?

Read this article in Portland Monthly about our work: Can Live Storytelling Be an Antidote to Xenophobia? by Sarah Hutchins.

If you are first generation immigrant and/or refugee living in the Portland metro area who wants to tell your personal story, contact us.

Information about this program is also available in Spanish, Arabic, and French.

So far we have had storytellers who now call Portland home who are originally from Palestine, Somalia, China, Denmark, Iran, Argentina, Ethiopia, Chili, Indonesia, Venezuela, and Mexico.
All Are Welcome.
