Climate Portals takes an inventive and intimate approach to the climate change debate, exploring the themes surrounding COP26 and providing a space for people from all walks of life to talk, spark ideas, share thoughts and experiences as if they’re in the same room.
The only one of its kind in the UK, the container is at the heart of the Climate Portals project, an ambitious arts collaboration between the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Shared_Studios, HarrisonParrott and Scottish Ballet.
Funded by the British Council, the project is part of the cultural programme in the build-up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26), which is hosted in Glasgow from 31 October to 12 November.
The golden portal situated at the Royal Conservatoire’s Renfrew St campus is just one of many portals scattered around the globe in destinations including Iraq, Mexico, Palestine, Rwanda and Uganda. Enter you will be connected to another worldwide portal and, through art and conversation, engage with someone you would never have a chance to meet otherwise.
The Climate Portals Festival will run from October 25 to November 12 and you can join in with our Open Hours, come along to a Climate Cafe or take part in one of the creative events taking place in and around the portal as COP26 gets underway in Glasgow.
