I’ve been fascinated by JR’s work and his Inside Out Project for a few years. I had seen his art in New York and Venice and when I heard about the Be The Change Inside Out Project it seemed like a perfect fit to try and collaborate with the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park.
I started the Global Citizen festival with the idea of connecting creatives with causes on a global scale, having the Be The Change images, which represented 17 different countries,throughout Central Park really gave the festival a global message. We are honored to be a part of the project’s mission of bringing awareness to the issues global citizens want to change, making citizens aware of their responsibilities and capacity to contribute to the changing world, and inspire creative solutions to make these changes possible.
