What is a crone? If you do crossword puzzles, you will find the clue “hag.” If you love literature and theatre, you might conjure up the three old witches in Macbeth. You will hear their croaking voices intoning, “Bubble, bubble, toil and trouble” as they cackle over their cauldron of mischief. The Google dictionary says a crone is an old woman who is thin and ugly.

AGE was proud to host a rare convergence of award-winning Indigenous playwrights.
Advance Gender Equity in the Arts (AGE) is awarding a total of $40,000 in grants to Portland area professional theatre companies that are committed to advancing intersectional gender equity. Now in its third year, AGE has raised $100,000 for Portland theatres to include women in their equity lens.
“Time’s up! Women’s stories deserve to be told. Women deserve to be seen, heard, validated, and respected. AGE is grateful to the many donors who make these grants possible. We are proud of the Portland Arts community for making intersectional gender equity a priority. Equity benefits everyone.” –Jane Vogel, AGE Founder/President.
Happy 2018! AGE is proud to announce a name change to start off the new year. Age and Gender Equity in the Arts (AGE) is now Advance Gender Equity in the Arts (AGE). The new name is dynamic and active because our mission is action-driven, making equity, diversity and inclusion the new normal in the arts.
