As a tour operator for people of color, Oregon wasn’t really on my mind when I was thinking of destination suggestions for my clients. However, when I heard about OSF through a Travel Professionals of Color conference, I immediately liked the Cultural Connections program that they offered.
On our visit, they were able to put us in touch with great places to stay and the city of Ashland had plenty of delicious dining options. Some of my clients had picky palates but Cultural Connections recommended several restaurants that satisfied everyone’s preferences.
We were able to see 4 amazing plays during our stay in Southern Oregon in addition to the pre-show play introductions and post show discussions provided as an added bonus! It was incredible to see people’s faces light up as they came up with insights and participated in discussions about plays that were previously unfamiliar to them, myself included. We will definitely be coming back next year!
