« Instead of conquering the world with intelligence individually, we will be stronger if we know how to do it together (…), by multiplying cultural projects such as the Rencontres d’Arles in Xiamen, » declared Emmanuel Macron in his speech in Xi’an and during his meeting with the press with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Very proud our cultural agency's first project, Jimei × Arles International Photo Festival, was mentioned several times by the French president during his State visit to China, and our partners Sam Stourdzé & RongRong Inri and founders Berenice Angremy and Victoria Jonathan got the chance to meet with Macron and his wife at UCCA Ullens Center for Contemporary Art in Beijing's 798 Art District.
