The Portal Project is designed to immerse the participant in another world. As if turning the corner of a street, or upon entering a room, the participant's horizon is swapped for somewhere else, and that other place has been brought to them.
The Portal allows for coincidental and spontaneous meetings between people who would not otherwise get the chance to meet. They can experience and interact with a different place or society that they may have previously only had a remote and sporadic awareness of.
TradeRelief is a charity supporting local enterprises with positive social impact in developing countries. It offers funds and business advice to carefully selected local entrepreneurs to grow sustainable businesses which provide employment, services and social benefits to the community.
I work with the small group of unpaid trustees who help administer TradeRelief's operations.
