Together, let's embrace our role as guardians of humanity's shared legacy.

Following the resounding success of previous shows at Atelier des Lumières in Paris and Fabrique des Lumières in Amsterdam, this groundbreaking multimedia installation by CulturEspace promises to captivate large audiences with its profound exploration of humanity’s intrinsic connection to nature.

For Jimmy Nelson, this project represents more than just art: We think the world belongs to us, but we belong to the world” he affirms. “This immersive experience compels us to learn from Indigenous communities. By shedding light on the wisdom and resilience of these cultures, Nelson challenges us to reevaluate our relationship with the planet and embrace humanity’s oneness.

Nestled inside the confines of a large historical quarry, Carrières des Lumières provides an unparalleled backdrop for Jimmy Nelson’s visionary show. The luminous white limestone walls serve as a metaphorical canvas, echoing the symbiotic relationship between humanity and the environment. Through this immersive journey, visitors are encouraged to rediscover their shared humanity and champion cultural diversity as a source of collective wisdom.

As the world grapples with pressing environmental and social challenges, “Les Gardiens de l’Humanité” offers a beacon of hope and inspiration. Join us on this transformative journey as we celebrate resilience, beauty, and the myriad cultures that grace our planet.
