Join us in advancing a Shared_Mission

Shared_Studios exists because the diversity of human experience is a source of joy, strength, and possibility for all of us.

We use Portals to help communities around the world embrace diversity and acknowledge the commonalities between us.

Every choice we make is in service of that mission. Whether we are building a new prototype or choosing our next Portal location, we do it to help people encounter perspectives from around the globe.

At an important historical moment

The world is getting smaller, but not kinder. Instead of connecting us, the internet encourages tribalism and distrust.

Rather than enrich our lives, the technologies that promised to bring us together have made us more isolated than ever before.

But by working together, we can respond to this moment of fragmentation with empathy and acceptance. We can build something that ties communities together.

 

Shared_Studios consists of a global network of Portal Curators and a core team based primarily in Brooklyn, New York.
