The Tout-Monde Festival presents the 1st Caribbean Contemporary Arts Festival in the United States. The festival takes place in Miami, Florida, on March 1-4, 2018.
The Tout-Monde Festival is an initiative of the French Embassy’s Cultural Services, in close partnership with the France Florida Foundation for the Arts.
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.
A Tribute to Edouard Glissant
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.
