Project « Beyond walls »

For Saype, art must be a tool furthering social advances and helping social conflicts. ‘Our lives and acts are traces that we leave behind in this world, we must make them meaningful’ – Saype. He considers his work as a way to share his vision of the world and to invite us to wonder about our deep nature, our spirit, our place on earth and in the society.

Beyond Walls
In a polarised world where mental and physical walls are being erected, Saype launches the largest human chain ever created. Beyond Walls project shows interlaced hands united in a common effort for every human individuality to be granted rights of way and civil ones. The project conveys a universal message of plural humanity.

International Day of Persons with Disabilities December 3rd


The annual observance of the International Day of Disabled Persons was proclaimed in 1992 by United Nations General Assembly resolution 47/3.

International Day of People with Disabilities (IDPWD) stands by its conviction that a person is not inherently ‘disabled’…disability is NOT a feature of a person.  We say that people have health impairments: some of us need wheelchairs to mobilise; some of us need seeing-eye dogs; some of us need assistive technology – just like some of us need glasses to read; or medication to manage pain; or an inhaler to manage asthma.

All people have different health impairments at some time in their lives.  The difference is that most of the time your health impairment doesn’t stop you from functioning, being included or participating in your community.

We will never eradicate health impairments…but by overcoming barriers, then we eradicate disablement.

World Children’s Day is November 20th

Thirty years ago, world leaders made an historic commitment to the world’s children by adopting the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child – an international agreement on childhood.

It’s become the most widely ratified human rights treaty in history and has helped transform children’s lives around the world.

But still not every child gets to enjoy a full childhood; too many childhoods are cut short.

It is up to our generation to demand that leaders from government, business and communities fulfil their commitments and take action for child rights now, once and for all. They must commit to making sure every child, has every right.

20 November is World Children’s Day – a day of action for child rights. What will you do?

2019 International Year of Indigenous Languages

IY2019 logo

The United Nations General Assembly has declared 2019 the International Year of Indigenous Languages (IY2019) to raise awareness of the crucial role languages play in people’s daily lives.

In Australia, of the estimated original 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages, only around 120 are still spoken. Of these approximately 90 per cent are endangered.

IY2019 is an opportunity to continue raising awareness and taking further actions to improve preservation and promotion of Australia’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages.

Steve Mc Curry exhibition

Discover Steve Mc Curry’s photographs at ‘La Sucrière’ – until 26/05/2019


Steve McCurry is among those iconic photographers whose work you may know without realising it. Do you remember the famous photograph of the “Afghan Girl” with green eyes that appeared on the cover of National Geographic? That was one of his.

This American photojournalist, who has been a member of the Magnum cooperative since 1985, has covered many war zones and photographed many countries, capturing portraits of their inhabitants or colourful street scenes.

The exhibition begins with black and white shots taken during his first trip to Afghanistan in the 1980s, where, after crossing the border in disguise, he followed a group of mujahideen.

5187570From India to China, Kuwait and Sri Lanka, 200 large-format photographs tell the story of his 35-year career, each evoking in its own way the story of people in their daily lives. With fleeting scenes and evocative portraits in which subjects lay themselves bare, Steve McCurry lifts the veil on humanity.

In addition, the photographer offers visitors a deeper understanding of his work as he tells the stories behind his photographs in the audio-guide.

Like an invitation to travel, this exhibition encourage us to explore life elsewhere in all of its rich diversity.
