Gaspard Louane invites 50 local illustrators and artists to answer the question « Why do I love Switzerland? » with an original visual creation and accompanying text.

The aim of this project is to question our civilization using the ‘positive gossip’ method. The idea is to generate a platform that gives voice to the positive, highlighting the aspects that bring us together rather than those that divide us, the aspects that give hope rather than those that inspire concern.

The comparable exercise would be to imagine having to present our living context to someone who would never have come here, while hoping that they would want to discover this place.
