Programming Options

Short-Term Placements

Under 1 month 

Short-Term Heavily-Programmed

Our Heavily Programmed Portal option is ideal for large-scale, turn-key applications. Our Portal Curator will work with your team to organize classes, dialogues, rock concerts, yoga classes, and whatever else you can imagine! Check out what we did for Chicago Ideas Week 2016 as an example.

Short-Term Lightly Programmed

Our Lightly Programmed Portal option is ideal for more casual encounters between strangers. We connect your site to sites around the world and enable people to converse around a pre-arranged prompt, such as movies, ideas or contemporary issues. Check out what we did for Airbnb at the Sundance Film Festival (dialogues around film) and what we did for Google for Entrepreneurs during the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (dialogues between startups). 


Long-Term Placements

3 months or longer

Staffed by Shared_Studios

For long-term placements, we can provide full-time staffing at your site. This person will work with you to program ongoing events, dialogues, classes and performances. To get a feel for what this looks like, check out what we are doing with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum

Staffed by Partner Institution

For placements over 3-months in length, you can choose to staff the Portal
yourself. We integrate one designated Portal Curator from your team to liaise with our global network. For an example of this, check out what we did with Greenwich Academy.
