By Marie Daulne
Last June, Marie Daulne was invited as a member of the Steering Committee in the Colloquium of the European Development Days entitled ‘Culture for the Future’ at Bozar, Brussels.
As an artist, Marie was invited to speak in the High Level panel “Visions and opportunities from the private and public sector”, which was preceded by a keynote speech from Audrey Azoulay, Director General of UNESCO.
All citizens of this planet wish to celebrate our existence. In other words, we're all attracted by elements of culture. Whatever we choose, we seek to connect with it. So why not enjoy the best of each culture and invest some of our time and money in creators, artisans, designers, artists, cultural organizations, mentors ?! So they can help us gain confidence and awareness and make us keep our dreams, our freedom. This culture, this creativity in each of us, will protect us from global consumerism and stimulate us to not let go of our real desires. Let the world feed you with all its knowledge, its spaces, it's people ... and life!
