"Paper & Glue" is a feature-length documentary that follows acclaimed French artist JR around the globe as he builds some of his most monumental projects, challenging perspectives and uniting communities through his thought-provoking work.

From early illicit graffiti videos captured on Paris rooftops at night, to the US-Mexico border, to the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, to a current collaboration at a California supermax prison, the film follows JR as he turns these communities inside out, turning images of residents into eye-catching and immersive art installations.

In "Paper & Glue," JR uses his vision and style to desensitize the general public’s “out of sight, out of mind” approach to those who are suffering. JR uses his platform to weave together these emotionally reflective present-day portraits to represent the global voice of women and men unheard.

In the English M.A. (Public Texts) at Trent University, we explore what it means to “go public” – to “publish” – and how that act resonates for writers, cultures, and publics. Our students will develop new ways of looking at the production and circulation of texts, and at the history and future of texts and publics, exploring emerging issues that are central to research today.

We believe that the arts are an indispensable part of what makes healthy people and healthy communities, and that everyone has the capacity for creativity. We also believe that the movement to shop local, treasure handmade goods, and do-it-yourself is not just a hipster fad: it's the way of the past, and also the way of the future. With the evermore pressing need for environmentally sustainable practices, we want to encourage you to buy less, buy better, and buy in a way that celebrates and invests in your local economy. Beyond supporting smart consumers, we aim to foster opportunities for the learning and teaching of creative skills to make useful things that bring you joy, and help us lessen our environmental impact at the same time.
