European 50 years Celebration logo

ESCP is participating in Inside Out, a global participatory art project, to immortalise the faces that make up our beautiful school and celebrate the 50th anniversary of our European model.

ESCP, with its rich history, wishes to illustrate its European model!

2023 is a special year for our 200-year old business school as we celebrate 50 years of our European model.

To celebrate this milestone, the Inside Out Photobooth truck is visiting ESCP campuses throughout Europe.

The goal is to bring together all members of ESCP’s European campuses and create links with their communities - by showing their faces.
Each person who participates in the Inside Out Photobooth Action will have their portrait printed out on a large poster.

How does it work?

Your poster is pasted on the wall

The Inside Out team takes your portrait and pastes it on a nearby wall or on the ground.

It is not the walls that make the city, but the people.

ESCP is more than a school, it is a community

To give a face to the diversity and plurality of the community, ESCP invites those who embody it to have their portrait taken for this special Inside Out Action.

Students, Alumni, professors and staff: all of us are unique and important members of this community. We are a living and growing community, with a strong diversity of talents from all nationalities and origines.

Inside Out Logo

After winning the TED Prize on March 2, 2011, the French-artist JR launched the Inside Out Project, in his first TED Talk. Using his own artistic practice as inspiration, this participatory platform helps individuals and communities to make a statement by displaying large-scale black and white portraits in public spaces. Through their “Actions,” communities around the world have sparked collaborations and conversations.

The Inside Out Project is a global participatory art project that allows everyone to share their untold stories by creating a work of public art. Participants share their message with the world by displaying large-scale black and white portraits of members from their community in public spaces. Through their Actions, communities around the world can stand up for what they believe in and spark global change locally.
