- Global connections in SF’s Chrissy Field
By Alison Graham and Lizzie Johnson - Thursday Jul 20, 2017
Half a world away, three students at Catholic University in Nairobi, Kenya, looked back.The screen, which sits inside a gold-painted shipping container, connects people around the world through video chats.For three years, a New York company has set up the screens they call “portals” to connect people who would otherwise never meet — and now there’s one in San Francisco.The body-sized screen in Crissy Field, not far from the Golden Gate Bridge, is part of a network of 30 portals stationed 11 countries, including such hard-to-reach nations as Iraq, Rwanda and Afghanistan.All that’s required in for the other country to have high-speed internet and a willing host, such as a university.Each portal has a projector and speakers that allow people to see and speak with counterparts in a similar portal — in a shipping container, a tent or a regular building.San Francisco’s portal opened Thursday and will connect visitors to a variety of countries Thursdays through Sundays until it closes September 24.Kate Bickert, a senior director with the Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, worked with Moghtader recently to bring a portal to San Francisco after her own experience.While visiting the Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. in January, Bickert and her teenage daughter slipped into a portal that had been set up inside.Bickert, her daughter and the Iraqis — who would never otherwise meet — talked about their lives for 45 minutes as if they were in the same room, not 7,000 miles and worlds apart.Every portal, even in the refugee camp, is staffed by a “curator” who facilitates translations and answers questions.In each session, she said she sees people making connections and learning about other cultures.Making the portal discussions work from country to country is a huge, logistical project, Moghtader said, referring to the time differences and set-up arrangements.
