In the month of November, Inside Out Project travelled to 37 Emerald Hill and 261 of you participated in this global art activation! This large-scale installation can be seen across the fence inside the compound, telling stories about our communities in Singapore.

(Re-installation of portraits are underway—watch this space for updates.)

About Artist

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.

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. Discover the extent of the project through some selected actions.
