The storytelling power of the arts has long been a powerful vehicle to inspire and influence change. Climate Portals’ is an exciting way to come together with communities from around the world where we can learn from each other, collaborate and create, and spark ideas and conversations that will provide a diverse range of perspectives and approaches to solving the climate crisis.”

Over the past seven years, Shared_​Studios has created meaningful human connections between people separated by distance and difference. We are excited to be a part of Climate Portals’ and connect communities around the world to exchange ideas and collaborate on solutions on the environment and sustainability. Climate Portals’ provides an opportunity for people to listen and learn from the experiences of communities, artists and changemakers around the world.”

Creating truly distinctive and thought-provoking work has been part of HarrisonParrott’s ethos for over 50 years. Climate Portals’ demonstrates our dedication to present projects that promote international cultural exchange, diversity and inclusivity, technological innovation and, of course, sustainability. We endeavour to embrace the challenge of climate change and look forward to working with the British Council, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Shared_​Studios, Scottish Ballet and many other partners in addressing this pertinent topic.”
