The Tout-Monde Festival closes each year with a ceremony in which the Tout-Monde Jury proudly offers the Tout-Monde Awards to two artists of the Festival, one for visual arts (since 2018), one for performing arts (since 2019), granting them respectively a residence at the Fountainhead Residency in Miami and with Miami Light Project.
The Fountainhead Residency was founded in 2008 in order to develop and support artists as well as promote the arts by inviting both national and international artists to Miami. It is a real nexus of artistic talent from all around the world: artists are invited to live and work in a wonderful space hosting 3 to 4 artists simultaneously for up to two months. This total immersion in an artistic environment enables them to create, converse, inspire and be inspired by the local community. Artists staying at the Residency are able to attend openings and talks, visit museums and galleries, and receive feedback from art professionals.
Founded in 1989, Miami Light Project is a not-for-profit cultural organization which presents live performances by innovative dance, music and theater artists from around the world; supports the development of new work by South Florida-based artists; and offers educational programs for students of every age. Since its inception, they have reached a diverse cross-section of communities throughout Miami-Dade County with an extensive outreach effort that includes partnerships with other arts organizations, universities and social service agencies. Miami Light Project is a cultural forum to explore some of the issues that define contemporary society.
