The project has been found by two combined ideas. It is cross over of a double common passion, travelling and art. Mathilde, a travelling lover, has developped a liking in discovering cultures and still integrates the human dimension in each of her adventures. It is in french polynesia that she discovers a population, proud of their culture and proud to transmit it to the whole wide world. Learning the tahitian dance, fishing and the local craft industry allowed her to submerge herself easily and better understand the tahitian. According to her, only the transmission of their know-hows and skills allow cultures to maintain alive.
