“Hosting top tier mover and shakers that have the power to change the world during an international market place like Festival de Cannes, was in deed a necessity. Our planet needs many key figures to understand our world is in critical condition right now, and through the arts, we can save our home. The arts allows people to experience other cultures and even have the openness to watch short films about our oceans and the floating island of plastic which cannot be recycled, elephants and endangered species are near extinction, to the narrative feature film that makes people want to talk. From art, to fashion, to music, we can come together and heal, this is an ongoing initiative…. that starts first with being inspired,” stated multi-media talent and organization founder Princess Angelique Monét.
