On March 2, 2011, JR won the TED prize at the TED Conference in Long Beach, California, and called for the creation of a global participatory art project with the potential to change the world. This project is called INSIDE OUT.
Inspired by JR’s large‐format street "pastings", INSIDE OUT gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art.
Each INSIDE OUT group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 260,000 people have participated in 129 countries.
This is the first ever INSIDE OUT project to take place in THE GAMBIA.
OUR MISSION is to bring awareness to the remote town of Lamin Koto and to provide an education platform that acts as an education PROTOTYPE bringing film in the center of our focus.
The INSIDE OUT initiative is another platform to raise awareness.
