‘Inside Out’ is a global participatory art project ‘with the potential to save the world’. Inspired by creator JR’s large‐format street “pastings”, the project gives everyone the opportunity to share their large-scale portrait and make a statement about the things they care about. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.
The exibitions cover varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence or climate change. Each Inside Out group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 260,000 people have participated in 129 countries, mainly in cities.
Here are some great examples of Inside Out projects and the statements they make.
