Tom practice amateur painting and music, studied international law but would rather prefer define himself by his passion for gatherings. Gatherings of all kinds.
After participating in the organization of various events : music festivals, artistic gatherings, conferences and debates, he started to be passionate about the very idea of “gathering”: This place of life and exchange, where we can share ideas, experiences, projects, but also emotions, fears, love or even just a smile.
Art is everywhere and politics is in everything. A "gathering" is only a way to link one to the other, a drink in hand. And that is probably already enough.
