What is on offer?
In a time when the truth is being challenged, and newspapers are being silenced, this is a public call to arms.
PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography is inviting the public to participate in Inside Out, the global participatory art project initiated by French artist JR that transforms messages of personal identity into works of art. The Inside Out project gives everyone a platform to speak their truth.
PHOTO 2021 is calling for people to submit their portraits and to tell us “WHAT IS YOUR TRUTH?”, tying in with the festival’s theme, exploring the critical relationship between photography and truth.
Up to 1000 portraits will be printed as posters and pasted up during the opening week of PHOTO 2021 International Festival of Photography at Fed Square in February 2021.
The Inside Out project has travelled from Ecuador to Nepal, from Mexico to Palestine, inspiring group actions on varied themes such as hope, diversity, gender-based violence, climate change. Each Inside Out group action around the world is documented, archived and exhibited online. Over 260,000 people have participated in 129 countries, and PHOTO 2021’s group action will be the largest scale project in Australia.
