The Inside Out/ Dreamers bus tour is coming to South Bend on Friday, November 3 to celebrate America’s DREAMers and rally our community to support the DREAM Act. Inside Out/ Dreamers is a nationwide participatory art initiative (the Inside Out Project), launched by award-winning artist JR to create a portrait of America that includes immigrants and the descendants of immigrants alike. We would love for you to invite your organizations and community members to this event and show their support for Dreamers.
Here’s how it works: The “Inside Out/Dreamers” photobooth trucks are traveling around the country to highlight and uplift DREAMers. On Friday, November 3 they will bring a photobooth truck into South Bend to give everyone an opportunity to take their pictures and transform their personal identity into works of public art. These photos will be instantly printed and included in a series of high visible art installations featuring a group of large-scale black and white portraits, creating a portrait of America!
Additionally, alongside this installation, the Emerson Collective will organize media availabilities and group action with community leaders to showcase the art, bring people together and urge support of the Dream Act. We will have more details about the press soon!
Please join us to have your picture taken and learn more about how you can be part of a movement to help our DREAMers. Bring along your family, friends and co-workers! Information, below:
