The FITE captures love in the broad and collective sense of the word by welcoming artists, craftspeople, textile makers from the five continents. Evoking love is an attempt at giving a meaning to it. But how can love be defined here and now as well as elsewhere, yesterday or tomorrow ?
A feeling, an emotion, an action, a way of being, of seeing the other and the others, it is an openness, an attitude, a way of being to the world. Loving is an act of benevolence and of generosity, it is desiring the good, it is acting in the world and reflecting in a collective way. Love is a creative power that enables us to think the world from the difference and not from the identity. This edition of the FITE, is tainted with African influences. Therefore, in 2020, Clermont-Ferrand is becoming the active hub for the encounter between Europe and Africa. In 2021, the FITE will fly away to Senegal.
