<< I think it's a really important project nowadays, to be able to connect voices and movement, souls and artists from all over the world in this dark period.
It creates hope for a safer future and not only do we open up to a larger audience but above all it sends a clear message of unity. A union that makes us stronger.
In fact, I thank the creators a lot but also the participants because in doing so we show how much we really are connected while living different realities. I hope this project is carried out so that we do not get lost in this world of injustice and inequality.
Art is our way out.>>
