In part five of the series, the graffiti displays from students caught the attention of JR, a street artist in France who is working on his own global art movement. He invited them to be a part of his art campaign, “The Inside Out Project.” The Project gets volunteers and organisers to plaster large portraits on the walls of public spaces around the world that depict the faces of people who don’t have a voice or are not visible in society. By plastering portraits of the underappreciated people in society, old or young, the campaign gives a voice to the community. JR said it is, “like leaving your mark on society.” With participants from 14 schools, 270 portraits have been plastered in the hopes of becoming the largest legal art exhibition ever and change the way viewers see the world.
