Kurema were proud contributors to the worldwide project, InsideOut. The mission was to turn the world ‘inside out’ with street art, empowering group action from people all over the world. Inline with activities of the Kurema’s 2014 initiative, ourproject’s purpose was to support a statement about “positive living.” The project begun with photographing the portraits of those who attended after an open call to all people to join. The second day involved pasting the giant portraits all over The Office building in Kiyovu. The project’s language, concept and group action was constructed to make a statement of solidarity; that we are all equal, whether positive or negative HIV. Importantly this reinforces the fact that we can’t look at someone and determine their HIV status, therefore we must all take precautions and practise safer sex.
