Celebrating Culture: Chaumet Honors Women Making a Difference at ECHO CULTURE AWARDS.

Chaumet, the Parisian luxury jewelry and watchmaking house, is well-known for its exquisite craftsmanship, timeless designs, and rich cultural heritage. But beyond its exceptional creations, Chaumet has been actively involved in promoting culture and the arts through various partnerships and collaborations. From supporting emerging artists and cultural initiatives to sponsoring major events, Chaumet has established itself as a passionate patron of the arts.

One of Chaumet’s recent endeavors in this domain is the Echo Culture Awards. The inaugural edition of the awards ceremony, held in Paris last April 18, celebrated women who are making a significant impact in the cultural and artistic sectors. Four winners were selected from a pool of 151 candidates and received grants to further their cultural projects. The winners included the Paris Mozart Orchestra, La Caravana Obscura, Jeunes Prodiges, and the Transplantation project. By supporting these women, Chaumet is fostering a culture of creativity, diversity, and inclusivity.

The first edition of the Echo Culture Awards, hosted by actress Sandrine Kiberlain, saw four women honored for their cultural and artistic projects, selected from among 151 candidates. The first category prize went to the Paris Mozart Orchestra founded by Claire Gibault. The association works to bring music to a broad public through a range of programs, including masterclasses, events at schools, as well as solidarity outreach in prisons, nursing homes and psychiatric hospitals. The prize in the second category was won by La Caravana Obscura, a project led by Lolita Bourdet which introduces people to photography thanks to a mobile trailer that has been transformed into a film development laboratory.

A project called Jeunes Prodiges, which encourages young people aged 12 to 16 to pursue their passion for writing – right up to the publication and sale of their books – was the winner of the prize in the third category. The jury, comprising François Alu, Ingrid Brochard, Mercedes Erra, Cédric Fauq, Loïc Yviquel and Chaumet president Jean-Marc Mansvelt, also awarded a Special Encouragement Prize to the Transplantation project led by Amandine Nana. This arts library, exhibition and workshop space is specialized in artistic creations by members of diasporas.

The grants received by the winners — €50,000 for the first category — will enable the talented project leaders to develop their initiatives and continue to support culture and solidarity.

Chaumet has also been actively involved in the world of classic cars. In 2021, the Maison participated in the Mille Miglia event, a classic car race that takes place in Italy every year. Chaumet sponsored a team of drivers who competed in the race with a vintage car, highlighting its passion for heritage and tradition.

In addition to these partnerships and sponsorships, Chaumet has also been involved in various philanthropic and charitable initiatives. The Maison has supported organizations working for the preservation of cultural heritage, such as the Fondation du Patrimoine in France. Chaumet has also been involved in initiatives promoting education and social inclusion, such as the La Chaîne de l’Espoir association that provides access to healthcare and education for children in need. By supporting these causes, Chaumet is showing its commitment to making a positive impact on society.
