What is PATA Switchboard?
We have partnered with a company called Switchboard to connect Portland theatre artists and simplify online communication in the Portland theatre community. On our PATA Switchboard site, you can ASK for what you need, or OFFER what you have to other members of the theatre community...kind of like Craigslist for artists!
