CAN ART CHANGE THE WORLD? MAYBE … WE SHOULD CHANGE THE QUESTION: CAN ART CHANGE PEOPLE’S LIVES?
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 120,000 people from more than 108 countries have participated.
The INSIDE OUT project has traveled from Ecuador to Nepal, from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change…

These glorious times, as we enjoy yet another brief sparkle of LGBT rights (obviously not in Russia), one can wonder how our world could be, if the vast human sexuality was free from pseudo moralities and archaic superstitions.
In this spirit American photographer Lindsay Morris has been documenting over the past three years, a four-day camp for gender nonconforming boys and their parents.
Morris on her project:
Camp You Are You (whose name has been changed to protect the privacy of the participants) offers a temporary safe haven where gender-variant boys can freely express their interpretations of femininity alongside their parents and siblings. These images represent the spirit of the children as they shine in an atmoshpere of support. Here they can be true to their inner nature without feeling the need to look over their shoulders…This experience can be very emotional for the parents, especially the families who are new to camp and are experiencing this kind of group acceptance for the very first time.
I would really love to follow the kids into adulthood and see what kind of relationships they develop, I want to witness the evolution, knowing from where they started and see how life is going to play out for them—hopefully happily—and I think they’re going to have a better transition into adulthood than the generation proceeding them.
