The 31st Carbet Prize of the Caribbean and the Tout-Monde will be this year placed under the sign of what women carry, and the presence of their word. It will be awarded in Paris, at the Palais de Tokyo on December 11 at 6pm and will be preceded by readings and performances in the Grande Rotonde from 3pm.
The Carbet Prize of the Caribbean and the Tout-Monde, supported by the Institut du Tout-Monde, has been chaired since its inception in 1990 by Édouard Glissant and rewards each year a work of the Caribbean open to imaginary and multiple identities in resonance.
The creolization of the world is the foundation of the Carbet Prize of the Caribbean and the Tout-Monde whose ambition is to :
Contribute to a better understanding of the phenomena and processes of creolization to promote the dissemination of the extraordinary diversity of the imaginary humanities, which are expressed, spoken, relayed and linked through the multiplicity of languages, the plurality of artistic expressions and new ways of life.
The creolization of the world continues, humanity is revealed.
Beyond language, beyond the Caribbean, the Carbet Prize contributes to the promotion of another vision of the world, an open, composite world, a world rich in its mixtures and its singularities, a Tout-Monde (Whole World). The Carbet Prize of the Caribbean and the Tout-Monde brings together the sensibilities of Creole and French-speaking literary productions through their “unity-diversity”.
