Immigrant & Refugee Urban Tellers® 
Urban Tellers® Immigrants and Refugees This fall, Portland Story Theater will be producing another storytelling workshop and performance featuring the real, true stories of immigrants and refugees. This work is aligned with our mission and our beliefs. The focus of the program is to humanize and build connection within our urban community. We want to hear from you. Contact us if you are an immigrant or refugee who is interested in telling a personal story, and also help us spread the word to everyone you know who might be interested in this opportunity. As of today, we have three (3) spaces left for our workshop, which launches on Wednesday, October 11, 2017.
View our invitations to get the details and then contact us!
