Our Promise to the Community

At Portland Revels we are committed to the values of inclusivity, equity, diversity and accessibility (IDEA.)  We continue to work everyday to find ways to realize these values across our programs, productions and day to day operations.  Portland Revels celebrates creating connection and cultivating a vibrant community, which is impossible without a robust commitment to IDEA principles.
