Dynamic local curators at each location make authentic connection possible by providing conversation prompts, programming expertise and live language interpretation. Face-to-face conversations empower us to embrace our differences and see the best in each other. Those connections opened a window from the Square to sites around the world, creating encounters between New Yorkers and Afghanis, Swedes, Mexicans and more. Narrative 4 uses story exchange to build empathy, shatter stereotypes, and break down barriers between young people.
These Portals connect regularly with one another to expose students to young people from diverse backgrounds, and to help those students build confidence in their public speaking, communication ability, and in themselves. Students develop familiarity and understanding of communities from Erbil, Iraq to Kigali, Rwanda, and engage directly with people they would never otherwise encounter.

The exhibit connected the atrocities of the past and the refugee crises of the present, while humanizing complex geopolitical events that many attendees knew little about.
Our world is suffering from a growing number of crises: climate change, conflict, displacement, a lack of social cohesion, economic injustice, and other stressors which prevent individuals from adequately taking care of their own mental, emotional and physical health and wellbeing. The impact of mental health issues on families and communities is increasing. The Portal movie, book, and educational series, plus The Stillness Project, seek to provide solid tools to help people navigate the path from feeling overwhelmed and stressed to reaching their potential. The Portal can make meditation the new jogging.
It is a personal practice which unlike jogging also has powerful implications for altering individual perspectives that can impact the culture of a family, community, workplace or country.
We can support our diverse screening partners with resources so they are able to implement meditation and mindfulness in their contexts. Let us know - Who are you? Your Name required.
