Inside Out Project With Central New Brighton School

Material relating to a Transitional Cities project, titled 'Inside Out Project With Central New Brighton School'. The project description reads:

INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. The INSIDE OUT project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize.The Central New Brighton School was told it would be closed after the earthquake even though it had not suffered severe damage. The school was told that their pool would cost $70,000 to repair. The school raised $2000 and with this they fixed their pool. This group project was about a community 'just doing it'. The project requires the photographer to ask a particular question when taking photos. Our questions were 'How did you feel when you heard you school was closing?' and 'How did you feel when your pool was fixed?
