About Knock, Knock

At Knock, Knock! We’re all about pulling neighbors together under the banner of storytelling. We feel that the act of telling is powerful and equalizing; it is honest and often hilarious. You never know where someone’s been until they’ve told you. First, you have to ask.

Our primary production, Knock, Knock! It’s your neighbor, is an annual live storytelling show about bizarre and extraordinary neighbors. In September 2013 Courtenay Hameister of Live Wire! Radio hosted our first event at the Bagdad Theater. Seven outstanding storytellers left the audience wishing for more and The Jackalope Saints gave them a reason to clap their hands and stomp their feet. Close to 300 people were present and more than $2000 was raised to fund projects that partner neighborhoods and local artists to dream up creative and interactive projects that encourage the public to take positive action in their communities.

Stay tuned for more information on next year’s Knock, Knock! It’s your neighbor event and the more intimate shows that happen in between—don’t they say it’s the small stuff that counts?

Knock, Knock! is presented by SE Uplift neighborhood Coalition, a coalition of 20 SE/NE Portland Neighborhoods
