CoHo Residency 2024

Residency Showcase June 21st -July 7th!

This Year CoHo presents three dynamic writer-performers who will be presenting radical new theater! Each show will be presented on its own weekend with multiple oppritunities to catch this beautiful new work. Our theater artists have been working for an entire semester to conceive and reconceive of the ideas that they have been developing on their own for years. Through the CoHo Residency they have been given access to playwriting workshops, mentorship and to our new Resource Center to provide them with the tools to take their work to the next level. If you would like to know more about each project or book your tickets click the link below!

Make a donation to CoHo

As we look back on yet another season at our little black box theatre, we’re overwhelmed by immense gratitude. With your help, CoHo produced a whopping 32 performances and workshops during 2023, and are thrilled to announce the opening of our new CoHo Resource Center

As a treasured supporter of our organization, we humbly ask for your continued support as the year winds down. Please consider CoHo when you are making your donations and consider supporting CoHo’s big dreams with a gift as we push ever-onward, gearing up for exciting things yet to come in 2024-2025.

Co-produce at CoHo

At CoHo Productions, we are committed to nurturing artistic growth by promoting local accessibility, diversity, and creativity. The Co-production Assistance Program provides a sustainable way for diverse and unique creators to produce their own work for their own communities.

This program offers our theater, lobby, and backstage space for free and gives specific technical, administrative, and production support. Co-producers will also have access to CoHo’s administrative staff, opening doors for mentorship, marketing, and so much more.

We have been working tirelessly over at CoHo to prepare a place specially designed for marginalized and emerging theater artists in Portland. Our small company is made up of such artists, so we reached out to our community to understand what our people wanted and needed in order to make their art. After years of fundraising, negotiating, and outreach, we are finally ready to give that to Portland, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the CoHo Resource Center with you and our local, creative community.

CoHo Residency

Applications for 2025 are now OPEN!

As CoHo continues to expand our new Grant Program, our mission remains to embolden performing artists in the Portland community. The Residency program is the next step in this process, allowing Artists in the community to develop work over the course of a four-month period with dedicated time and resources to scale.

This process-driven program will allow working artists to intentionally develop a creative method in a safe supportive environment. New works will have a total of two presentations, one in house for staff, crew, and residents. The other will be a final presentation, broadcast to a public audience at the end of the term.

Discord is a free communication app that lets you share voice, video, and text chat with your friends and community. The CoHo Community Discord is a virtual hang-out spot for those who want to be in dialogue about art, ideas, and upcoming events happening in our city. This platform is important because it creates a virtual space for our community to be in conversation with each other, allowing artists to share their work with an interested audience of fellow artists and creators, and enabling them to receive feedback in real time.

By utilizing Discord, CoHo hopes to create an online digital community of thinkers, creators, and engaged patrons that is active and accessible to anyone, not just CoHo artists, in the hopes that by connecting our community, support and enthusiasm for the arts will blossom and grow.

Anti-Racism Statement

CoHo Productions stands in solidarity with our BIPOC community. We commit to join those working to dismantle the entrenched, institutionalized racism that makes it possible for the centuries of violence against POC to continue. We acknowledge that white supremacy is central to systems of oppression, and that by not dismantling it, we have been complicit in keeping it intact. We commit to examining and deconstructing that white supremacy in our organization, listening and making space for voices of Black artists and artists of color, and actively working to fight racism in all of its explicit and implicit forms.

Land Acknowledgement

CoHo acknowledges the roles of White supremacy and colonization that are deeply embedded in the technology, organizational structures, and way of life we experience everyday. We acknowledge the land and resources we use to create our programming rests on the historic village sites of the many tribes who made their homes along the Columbia and Willamette rivers. We challenge ourselves and our community to consider how we play into the social structures that govern our everyday lives, reflecting on our roles in decolonization, reconciliation, and allyship.
