In March 2008, when he came back from Africa, JR is invited to paste portraits of his Heroes in Brussels, Belgium.
This was the first exhibitions devoted to the project Women are Heroes, specifically to the African section. Parternership were also establish with two national newspapers, Le soir and De Morgen. JR released two special editions promoting the exhibition and presenting the project. Both newspapers sent reporters to Sierra Leone and Liberia to meet the women who had been photographed and to record their stories.

En 2008 quand il revient d’Afrique JR est invité à coller des portraits de ses héroïnes, à Bruxelles en Belgique.
Cette exposition est le premier collage en l’honneur des femmes du projet Women are Heroes, plus précisément en l’honneur des femmes africaines qu’il a rencontré. Un partenariat est établi avec deux journaux belges : Le soir et De Morgen. Ces deux journaux permettent à des journalistes belges d’aller rencontrer les femmes du projet, au Sierra Leone et au Liberia.
