INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE
             

Since the 2018 edition of La Nuit des Etoiles, Crown Premium Event is collaborating with the “Grandes Conferences Catholiques” which since 1931 invites as speakers important personalities such as  politicians, economists, royals, religious leaders who have influenced our era.
 
“All currents of opinion have access to this grandstand. Along the years, we could listen speeches dedicated to religious and philosophical topics, the evolution of sciences, economy, arts and literature or even political currents. So many men and women who have make their stand in our time, in their own ways and in their own specialty of expertise.
 
The tribune of the Grandes Conferences Catholiques impassions an open mind, curiosity and freedom of speech. In the era of mondialisation, it allows to feed a public eager to acquire knowledge and understanding, in a framework that respect different opinions.

2019 Edition.
 
Guest of honnour : Mr. Yves Duteil, French author, composer, performer and writer.
Title : " What if the key was elsewhere? "
Place : Library "U.O.P.C." in Brussels
Speakers : Yves Duteil & Alexandre Bodart Pinto
 

«After many months of absence, due to health issues, the famous singer songwriter and performer of Taking a Child by the Hand and The Language of Home returns to the centre stage and writing with the release of his new album «Respect» and his latest book «What if the key was elsewhere?» 

This ordeal, like that of Alexandre Bodart Pinto, will make him look at life differently and appreciate life. Now cured, the artist explains in the pages of the Parisian that «I’m reborn, I’m even better than before.»

It is therefore natural that he agreed to be one of the ambassadors of the  Wheeling Around the World association and to support Alexandre in his projects and those of his association.

Yves Duteil will come to talk to us, to talk us through his album and his book and about the way he lives his life after going through this difficult experience.

His writing desk offers pages of a precious testimony, both a story of life and a journey of self-discovery. The artist trusts himself like never before.

His words evoke his life, his career and his fine profession as a craftsman of songs. They talk about his outlook on existence and its mysteries. His words are murmurs of his quest for meaning, his paths of spirituality and his questions: «Spirituality guides my life. It adds a new dimension that is missing on paper. And when I land again after making my escape, my heart has quenched its thirst for heaven and its desire to fly, I feel richer within, greater than this ride. This secret world, invisible in the blinding sunlight, needs darkness and silence to converse, far from the daily grind.

I would like to share this trip, because it focuses on all that we have as most precious, most fragile and reliable at the same time, this elusive part of the immaterial which accumulates our legacies and crosses through time through essential memories. Eternity does not care about the present. But we are perhaps the numerous characters it needs to write its journey and embody this continuity. Whatever our religions, our beliefs or our cultures, we carry this mystery like a spark... It is a word of love, the seed of a fruit, an invisible pollen that fertilizes the earth and waits for the right season to sprout, grow and prosper. It’s a thought in a garden, an oasis perhaps? A hope.»
