The UMD Portal launched this past Friday, September 9 and is currently installed in front of The Clarice (photo at left!).
Since the launch of Portals in December 2014, more than two thousand people have carried on private, 20-minute conversations with strangers from the other country responding to the same prompt: “What would make today a good day for you?” People spoke about their hopes for their children, ailing relatives, dinner plans, pollution, dating, and much more. Participants came out weeping, giddy, and everything in between.
Participants at The Clarice this month will be paired with a participant in one of two locations - Herat, Afghanistan or Mexico City. Other locations will be available in October.
The Portal is here for you! Please view the schedule and book time in the Portal here:http://www.sharedstudios.com/
