Accessibility and Portland Actors Ensemble

As we work towards a more equitable structure, we are also examining what accessibility means. While free theatre with the occasional ASL interpreter is a good place to start, we cannot stop there. We want to build a company that supports Artists with disabilities and we are exploring what that means.

We’re also considering: how do we reach audience members for whom English is a second (or third or fourth) language?

We look forward to collaborating with community organizations to better achieve this core value of accessibility. This is part of the internal work PAE is doing, both as a company and individuals, and we cannot wait to share our discoveries with you.
