The title of the Inside Out Project in Wuppertal is “different faces – different views”. It’s a project against racism and for tolerance. We want to bring people of different ethnic origin, religion, culture, gender or sexual orientation together. We want that People see people besides all differences. Being different opens up more possibilities, such as life could be too. We can learn from each other and so enrich our own lives. We need not all be equal in order to live together. And sometimes we are more equal than we want to admit it.
“different faces – different views” – that’ s okay!!! Show up your face, be different and feel free.
