Through JR's “Inside Out” project, we, the students of Jean Zay college in Cenon (difficult district in the suburbs of Bordeaux) wish to show the “true face” of French youth. The media often show violent, over-connected youth in our neighborhoods ... adrift. We want to show the whole world that, on the contrary, we are a plural but united youth; a youth aware of the current difficulties but which keeps smiling; a youth that is being built and committed to a better tomorrow.
We dream of meeting the artist JR who is a role model for all of us. We hope that he will be able to come and see us and help us stick our portraits on the facades of the college and on supports that will be exhibited in different places of the city.
To communicate about our project, we created a TV show
