Face of Dance - Inside Out Project

Help represent the NYC Dance Community

Participate in the Face of Dance - Inside Out Project, a portrait series that recognizes the importance of dance in New York City.  We want to celebrate the influence that dance brings in its many forms, and the diversity of individuals within the field.

The mission of the Face of Dance photo project is to represent the strength of this community, from students and interns, to professionals in the field, and those who work to protect important institutions and schools, advance education, and the careers of artists.   

As part of a global arts initiative hosted by the Inside Out Project, your portraits will be displayed to raise public awareness about our community.  The Face of Dance - Inside Out Project is an opportunity for the dance community to represent their influence on society and share their voices on concerns. 

Black and white photographs will be taken of each participant and blown up into large posters to display in NYC.  Your photos and comments will also be uploaded to the Inside Out Project website.

The Inside Out Project

The Inside Out Project was created by world renowned photographer and street artist, JR, who has gained worldwide recognition for his photo graffiti.  

His work earned him the TED PRIZE in 2011.  Starting with the streets of Paris as his canvas, JR's installations have taken him as far as Africa, North America, and the favelas of Brazil.  His latest initiative, the Inside Out Project calls upon the public to take photos of themselves and causes they represent.  Inside Out Projects are displayed around the world, and they are definitely not to be missed.
