A GLOBAL ART PROJECT
#insideoutproject in a youth prison in Vechta, Germany entitled “The Walk to be Free”
8 Portraits - June 2014

Their Statement: These eight portraits represent all young women (ca. 28) behind prison walls. With masks they protect themselves from the prejudice of society. The participants are 17-24 years old. They were asked the following question: When released from prison, a fairy godmother awaits at the gate and grants you ONE WISH. What will it be? 

Their answers were: 
An apprenticeship. 
Appreciate the little things in life. 
Keep in touch with the important people in my life. 
A high school diploma. 
That someone important to me, stands by my side. 
Hope for my daughter. 
No prejudice. 

The day, Friday June 13, the images are revealed to the public, four of the eight participants will have achieved their secondary school diploma. During the next month six of the eight young women will have been released from prison. I believe, I hope, and I pray every day, because I want to be free and live my life!

Their Statement: Our initiative is an initiative from us, the students of the Collège Fersen at Antibes (France), that’s not an initiative by teachers but completely by students.

#insideoutproject in Ivanhoe, North Carolina
30 Portraits - April 2014

Their Statement: More often than not, artists work in isolation in studios away from the general public eye and even each other. This “Inside Out Project” will gather artists, living in various parts of North Carolina, together as they paste their portraits on a grove of pine trees. This gesture will bring artists together to create outdoors in an expression of esprit de corps! Not only is this an opportunity to share in a group effort and experience, it will put an actual and literal face to each individual artist while creating a visible context to a group known as working artists.

#insideoutproject in Châteauneuf-la-Forêt, France
54 Portraits - June 2014

Their Statement: “Open yourselves to the world and knowledge in order to know yourself better. Because culture, art and sports help us understand ourselves better, live in society and therefore respect ourselves.” We led this project from start to finish and presented it to the entire school and the students’ parents. It was such a blast, because we were able to share our statement with people from all over the world. It taught us to always be curious, respectful and happy Word from the teacher: “The final result was great but the process was just as rewarding. The kids put a lot of energy into this project and should be really proud of themselves!”
