Fourth Portal stimulates knowledge exchange by bringing technology, social gathering and innovation to life.

We animate discarded locations and invigorate communities to create new businesses, jobs, income opportunities and local programmes. 

Town centres are not returning to how they were twenty years ago.

In the next ten years, businesses and jobs will have little resemblance to companies and employment from ten years ago.

Knowledge being exchanged at the Fourth Portal

The next generation of 'go-to towns' will be the ones with DIY culture.

Recent technological breakthroughs, including generative AI, will transform how people work, learn, interact, socialise and grow.

Creating the spaces and inspiring communities will be crucial for towns wishing to be part of this next wave of innovation and social revolution.
