The Tout-Monde Festival is an initiative launched in 2018 by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States of America, in close partnership with the France Florida Foundation for the Arts and French Arts Associates. It is a multidisciplinary contemporary arts festival that creates new opportunities for Caribbean contemporary artists by fostering relations and building long-term partnerships between French Caribbean and other Caribbean artists, academics and cultural institutions in Florida, the United States and the wider Caribbean region.
By doing so, the festival also endeavors to develop the knowledge of future generations about Caribbean culture and to encourage tourism and economic exchange between Florida and the Caribbean. Spanning across all fields — visual and performing arts including music, dance, theatre, film, literature –, the Tout-Monde Festival will present contemporary artistic, cultural and intellectual practices of the greater insular, continental and diasporic Caribbean context.
The Tout-Monde Festival aspires to embody the spirit and philosophy of the “Tout-Monde” – the union of territories, cultures and individuals with multiples roots in one “Whole World” –, a concept introduced by Martinican writer, poet and philosopher Edouard Glissant (1928-2011) in his book Traité du Tout-Monde.
The theme of the 2nd edition, Echo-Natures, aims at deconstructing stereotypes of the Caribbean by exploring the deep characteristics and the essence of the Caribbean through different beings, shapes and environments. Analyzing how these Caribbean Natures, encountered in insular, continental and diasporic contexts, resonate one to another, and with the rest of the world, in reference to the Echo-World of Edouard Glissant.
This edition will take place from March 13 to March 17, 2019 in six key places of Miami art scene: the Koubek Center, the Pérez Art Museum Miami, the Museum of Art and Design @ MDC, the Wolfsonian-FIU, Little Haiti Cultural Complex, and the Institute of Contemporary Art.
