Welcome to Syde-Ide


We want to build a hub of creativity between different artistic communities in the Portland area. In addition to the main-stage works, we hope that arts organizations across the city will open their doors to host a variety of experiences: devised works, staged readings, workshops, short films, community discussions, dance, etc. We want this to expand beyond a theater festival. We seek to create a full, enriching experience. We hope to eliminate the feeling of competition, and move towards a culture of creation and collaboration.


Our Mission

Syde-Ide Collaborations illuminates the marginalized lens through theatrical performance and visual art to inspire conversation and action.

Our Vision

Syde-Ide Collaborations will cultivate an artistic hub through an annual festival spotlighting Fresh Eyes and New Voices.
