Being a middle school student, it is sometimes difficult to find your place in a community. At our school, we want to hear from our students, but also encourage them to act on their beliefs; to get involved. By asking student artists to share their thoughts, we hope to spark richer expression, a clearer opportunity to have one's voice heard, and an overall empowerment that might otherwise be denied or overlooked. Young people need to have an outlet. The Inside/Out Project can give them a platform and ask them to be brave.
