Julia Lagahuzère awarded “Chevalière de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres”

6th December 2023

We congratulate Julia Lagahuzère, Opera for Peace co-founder and General Director, on being decorated “Chevalière de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres” by the French Cultural Ministry for “significant contributions to the arts, literature, and their promotion”.
 
“I am extremely grateful for this recognition and excited to continue my journey in fostering creativity and changing lives. This is not just a personal honor, but a celebration of the power of culture and its ability to connect us all.
 
Culture is the fabric that weaves societies together, fostering understanding, empathy, and shared experiences. Through arts and literature, we transcend boundaries, enriching our collective narrative. This honour fuels my commitment to championing the arts as a powerful force for unity, social justice and enlightenment.
 
Thank you to all the Opera for Peace team and those who have given exceptional support from the beginning, when the mission seemed unobtainable.
 
Let’s continue to celebrate and amplify the transformative power of culture in shaping a more vibrant and interconnected world!” Julia Lagahuzère
