Portland Ovations fully believes in and is committed to the arts as a space to honor our differences and express our shared humanity; however, there are different needs and priorities right now as our communities rage and grieve in the aftermath of continued racial injustice.
Portland Ovations stands in solidarity with Black and brown artists, colleagues, and citizens in our communities and around the world.
With this top of mind, Ovations is postponing its Thursday, June 4 virtual gathering. A new time and date to be announced.
We will continue to support and present Black, brown, Indigenous and all peoples of color from our Maine and global artistic communities – sharing stories of struggle and inequality, resilience and beauty.
We will see you soon at one of our virtual events or when we return to our community venues.
