Project Summary: The Futures Lab: Inside / Out project was inspired by the world-renowned French artist, JR. Our students were paired up and had a week-long interview process. This project taught students how to listen to other people's experiences, digest everything, and then be able to rephrase the dialogue in an attempt to provide a deeper understanding of classmates. Students wrote down all of their findings into a profile piece about their interviewee. In the end, a collection of portraits and profile pieces were created and put on display at Futures Lab. The purpose of this project was to create a sense of belonging and to celebrate our diverse community of students and staff.
Students also elected to create a documentary to better explain the purpose and execution of this project. This can be seen in the YouTube video linked here:
Below are the portraits of the students and staff of Futures Lab taken for this project which are also hyperlinked to the profile piece written by their classmate.
