Description

Opening Ceremony of the Tout-Monde Festival, the first Caribbean Contemporary Arts Festival, initiated by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States and the France Florida Foundation for the Arts.


This Opening Ceremony, hosted at the Perez Art Museum Miami, will unite for the first time ever in the United States an exceptional selection of Caribbean authors and artists. French Politician and former Minister of Justice of France, Mrs. Christiane Taubira, will open the Ceremony as Cultural Ambassador of the festival.


An exciting conversation will follow between famous author Patrick Chamoiseau (Martinique) and Professor Dr. Michael Dash (Trinidad-and-Tobago), moderated by internationally renowned author Edwidge Danticat (Haiti), to explain the very meaning of “Tout-Monde”, a concept introduced by Martinican poet, author and philosopher Edouard Glissant (1928-2011).


A once in a lifetime duo performance will follow by Jazz musician Jacques Schwarz-Bart (Guadeloupe) and choreographer and dancer Léna Blou (Guadeloupe). The curators of the festival, Johanna Auguiac and Claire Tancons, as well as PAMM’s chief curator, Tobias Ostrander, and French Cultural Counselor, Bénédicte de Montlaur will briefly present their vision of the festival.

Event sponsored by Rhum Clément, Norwegian Air and Heico.
