    By the way, Inside Out is about getting people to participate in the project, so if anyone is interested, they can set up a group where they are and start changing the world through art.

  • it’ll be difficult to replicate this feat – so be inspired instead.

  • Wow. I especially liked the pieces in Palestine. I thought it was cool how he made a point of not getting permission to do it.

  • I like the stuff. Do the people he works with — the local coomunity — get a share of the profits?

    Profits don’t necessarily translate in to currency –it would be enough to spread it equally among all participants. The biggest rewards for those communities is been part of such project.

    The awareness, exposure and acknowledge this project has given to the community is huge. It should inspirational and inspire others to do similar kind of projects.
    Been engage in an activity give u hope and for many people a reason to look forward.

    To be honest, I’ve watched many of the TED videos and I don’t think he deserved to win. Don’t get me wrong, I love his work and what he’s doing, but some of the other things I’ve seen are pretty incredible. Salman Kahn comes to mind, he’s completely changing our failing school systems. Anyways, congrats to JR he’s doing some amazing things!

  • lapetitefaon

    WOW thanks so much for this comment, took at look at this AND Salman Khan IS so amazing! So excited to use his videos to help me get through organic chemistry! Kind of wish he would have won too now!
