Spanning across all fields - visual and performing arts including music, dance, theatre, film and literature - this launch edition will focus on 17 artists and authors from the French Antilles – Guadeloupe, French Guyana and Martinique – invited to present their performances, artwork, films or published works, in dialogue with 7 other Caribbean artists and authors from Cuba, the Dominican Republic, Haïti, Puerto-Rico, Trinidad and Tobago and Venezuela.
 
Under the leadership of internationally renowned French Caribbean curators, Johanna Auguiac and Claire Tancons, and directed by the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the USA through its Cultural Attaché and founder of the festival Vanessa Selk, the first edition of the festival will center on the theme of Hétéronomonde, confronting ideas of heteronomy and autonomy within the Tout-Monde.  
 
During the Closing Ceremony, an international jury chaired by American-Haitian artist Édouard Duval-Carrié, will reward one artist with the Tout-Monde Award, which offers an art residency program for one month at the Fountainhead Residency in Miami.
