It is a strong ambition that Chaumet carries through its jewelry collections that symbolically unite, but also with its new Echo Culture Awards, unveiled on January 10.

"We are convinced that culture is a powerful way to make life more beautiful," explains Jean-Marc Mansvelt, CEO of Chaumet.

That's why we want to encourage and celebrate the "transmitters of culture", these women who get involved in the field, to move the lines, disseminate and promote culture.

For this first edition, a prestigious jury, chaired by Sandrine Kiberlain, will reward three local initiatives in April, working in France – the prize opens internationally next year.

“This project is very close to my heart and I am delighted to be its president,” says the actress.

“Art is most often the result of teamwork.

A team that unites those of shadow and light.

This personal adventure with the Chaumet house allows me to take advantage of my exhibition to shed light on those who, hidden, make artistic and cultural projects see the light of day.”

Applications are open

In the meantime, applications are open until March 10.

Who can apply?

“All the women who disseminate and transmit culture on the scale of a region, a city or a district.

The more local it is, the more anchored it is,” specifies Jean-Marc Mansvelt.

The prize is aimed at those who act alone or in small structures not exceeding twenty people and whose head office is located in France.

Projects can relate to all fields of creation: plastic arts, design, literature, dance, crafts, heritage preservation, education, performing arts or visual arts... The prize aims to reward projects that create social ties, diversify audiences and have a real impact on the ground.

The three winners will see their initiative highlighted and will receive a grant allocated according to the size of their project: €10,000, €25,000 and €50,000.

This amount will represent 50% of their budget for each.

This funding may relate to existing projects in need of support or ready to be implemented.

To identify talent, the jewelry house, which is celebrating its 243rd anniversary, is joining forces with Thanks for Nothing, the associative collective of women committed to culture, which has already successfully shaken up the codes of the industry.

Alongside Sandrine Kiberlain and Jean-marc Mansvelt, we find in the jury Ingrid Brochard, the founder of Mumo – the mobile museum whose truck crisscrosses the countryside –, but also personalities from the artistic and associative milieu.

A symbolic voice is reserved for some 400 employees of the Chaumet house, who will accompany the winners in the first decisive years of their adventures to help them deploy their project.

Award ceremony for this first edition on April 18.
