For Christian Louboutin , no matter the rich or the poor , they all should enjoy the charm of the arts. So Christian Louboutin set up a foundation , just for helping the poor . Today let me tell you the how the foundation run.
The foundation’s inspiration came from Christian Louboutin’s travels to Luxor as a documentarian at work on a yet undisclosed project, where he discovered firsthand that many of his subjects felt emotionally stunted due to a lack of exposure to the arts. “Talent is equally distributed in the world. It is the opportunities that are not,’” says Christian Louboutin. “I am extremely lucky and grateful that I have been given gifts which allow me to be in a privileged position today. So I need to do everything in my power to try and help in any form I can.” The first workshop took place in April 2014 in coordination with MIMA Music, an international NGO, and Makan, the Egyptian Center for Culture and Art, and brought together 150 students with musicians and teachers from the U.S., Argentina, and Cairo.
Christian Louboutin’s plans for the future of the foundation include daily after-school classes at the Luxor center, run by locals and focusing purely on creative endeavors. “Painting, photography, acting, and music,” Christian Louboutin lists, “This type of work is relevant in both the so-called ‘developed countries’ and the ‘developing countries,’ because for different reasons many children, whether they are in “disadvantaged” situations or not, are in need of being exposed to the arts and having access to a space where they express their feelings, and dream big.” Children in traditionally developed nations are in just as much need of artistic allies, Christian Louboutin asserts. “One of the problems I see in the Western world is that children are growing up with the heaviness of the disappointment of the economic crises of the last few years, and were pushed to make choices that don’t allow the development of those qualities which might make them happy.”
Christian Louboutin’s next step? Bringing on partners to aid in the mission—“The only way to get things done is to unite forces!” Christian Louboutin believe will foster a sense of community. “We should always remember that children are the future,” says Christian Louboutin, “and this new generation should not only have dreams, but also have the opportunity to pursue them.”Let us try to help more and more poor people to feel the charm of the arts.
