MISSION

Bare Portland is a performance collaborative focused on community building through site-specific creative projects.  We create high caliber theatrical productions open to all members of the Portland community to foster empathy and inclusiveness.

Emboldened by the idea that stories can be told anywhere, Bare Portland hosts performances outside of the traditional stage setting and brings programming to notable public spaces and organizations of Portland. Bare Portland collaborates with a broad section of local creatives, as well as organizations outside the creative sector. In our commitment to accessibility, we feature pay-what-you-can or free tickets to all events.

COMITTMENT TO DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

We continue to work to educate ourselves about what it means to truly be inclusive. We strive to create diverse casts and raise the voices of minority and marginalized communities. If you think there is a better way for us to communicate our desire to create inclusive ensembles, and feel generous enough to share that feedback with us; we welcome it with open hearts. Feel free to contact us with any suggestions to our director, JJ Peeler at jj@bareportland.org.
