Portals are a global public art initiative created by Shared_Studios. When people enter a Portal, built in repurposed shipping containers, inflatables, and custom structures, they feel as though they are sharing the same space as someone in an identical Portal, somewhere else on Earth. Portals are staffed by human beings – curators who provide live language interpretation, organize events, and facilitate connections between their local communities and the world. Everyday, Portals host dialogues, performances, classes, collaborations, and more, and are freely accessible to the public. Community partners have built permanent Portals in diverse locations around the globe, including Iraqi refugee camps, American cities, Afghan universities, Mexican public parks and German libraries. Shared_Studios maintains a network of 40 Portals around the world and connects these spaces to one another for dialogues, performances, and collaborative activities.
