About the Project
InsideOut is a photography project that seeks to empower low-wage migrant workers with basic photography skills and provide them an avenue to express themselves. The project also presents a unique opportunity to engage Singaporeans and facilitate reflection and conversations on issues of identity, integration and social spaces.
The volunteer-run initiative was inaugurated in 2005 and featured during the Month of Photography in 2009 and 2010. In 2011, 25 migrant workers, including some residents of shelters run by the Humanitarian Organisation for Migrant Economics (HOME), participated in 10 intensive workshop sessions. Topics covered by professional photographers included colors, compositions and using photography as a storytelling medium.
