of the Association Quatre Couleurs
The purpose of the association is to promote the creation and production of live audiovisual shows and cultural events such as concerts, film screenings, exhibitions and live performances.
It will develop with the aim of protecting and safeguarding natural and oral heritage; participating in educational actions on diversity; collecting and preserving documents, objects, know-how to promote cultural identities throughout the world; ensuring the mutual dissemination of the results of collective and individual work; carrying out research and contributions that contribute to positivising diversity; favouring the development of knowledge, beyond the limits of prejudice, by promoting structural, dynamic, relational and critical thinking through the arts.
When Delphine Garnier asked me in October 2017 to become the ambassador of her association "Quatre Couleurs", I didn't really know what I was getting myself into, but something about her speech and her determination caught my attention. Delphine takes the time to introduce me to each of the association's craftsmen and the more I listen to Delphine and understand her fight, I realise how the defence of craftsmanship is directly linked to the defence of nature and the environment, a fight that is particularly close to my heart. The values of Quatre Couleurs: traceability, defence of craftsmanship, and transversality have allowed me to understand that they are also a direct response to the relocation that has amputated French and European culture over the last few decades, and which has gradually led to the disappearance of the know-how that has been its wealth and culture for so long.
Becoming an ambassador for this association has allowed me to broaden my understanding of the world we live in and to acquire better tools to improve my artistic and human approach in this era where consumers and producers have a real responsibility.
In October 2018 Delphine Garnier contacted me to introduce me to the association "Quatre couleurs", of which she is the founder. Whether by chance or by fate, the idea of committing myself to an association had been on my mind for some time... Immediately won over by both her speech and the values that this association conveys, it is with real joy and desire that I proudly accept to become one of its ambassadors.
The idea of bringing together different actors of French know-how is for me a more than enriching vector for our culture and seems to me indispensable at this time when the ecological impact is at the heart of my concerns. I believe deeply in the quality of French know-how in all its forms, and I am delighted to meet all these craftsmen and artists, to discover their arts, and to try to defend the "made in France" as best I can.
Delphine, through her ideas, her enthusiasm and her convictions, has been able to bring together all these different craftsmen and bring them to light, transversality, traceability and sharing being the heart of the association's values.
