Monaco’s newest arts club to launch with a bash

The Monaco International Music & Arts Club is throwing a launch party to introduce potential new members to the association as well as to entertain guests with a musical happy hour put on by the Golden Voices Music Awards.   

There’s a brand-new association in town. Called the Monaco International Music & Arts Club, or MIMA Club for short, the exciting collective is bursting onto the social scene in style with a launch party being held at Stars’n’Bars on 26th November from 5pm to 10pm.   

Open to all ages and levels, the club is for professional musical artists and young talent, and is being touted as a “gateway to media competitions and a possible path to becoming a professional” in the entertainment world. Additionally, the club will offer various activities for those interested in theatre and acting, including workshops, masterclasses, summer campuses, filming, plays, Q&A conferences, and career counselling.   

MIMA Club, whose partnerships include the Golden Voices Music Awards as well as the casting director for The Voice, Bruno Berberes, the Cannes Cinema Academy, the Monaco Méditerranée Foundation, and the Rencontres Littéraires’ Fabian Boisson, will open the soirée with a presentation and press conference introducing themselves and their plans for activities and events.  

This will be followed at 6pm by a free concert featuring Jil Aigrot, the voice of Edith Piaf in the Oscar-winning film La Môme, Rebecca Sayaque, the winner of The Voice Kids 7, and Vanina Aronica, a classical crossover singer, vocal coach and president of the Golden Voices Music Awards, to name only a few.  

The night is an open house and all are welcome. For more information on the club and the upcoming event, please visit the MIMA Club website.

Help the environment by offloading old undies

Monaco’s Environment Department is encouraging residents to drop off old, clean undergarments to be reused, transformed or recycled.  

In an age when many people are trying to do their bit to help the environment, there is one genre of items that is often overlooked. When underwear is past its prime, there seems to be few options, as most second-hand and charity shops don’t accept them. With nowhere else to go, they end up in the rubbish as part of the millions of tonnes of textile waste that clogs our landfills.  

Monaco’s Environment Department, however, is determined to get to the bottom of this problem and has put out a call to collect clean, but no longer used or wanted, undergarments as part of European Week for Waste Reduction, which is held from 21st to 26th November.  

A container has already been set up in the Fontvieille shopping centre that will allow people to drop off knickers, socks, bras and the like. They will be reused, if in excellent condition, otherwise they will be transformed or recycled.   

The container will remain at the entry of the mall until 25th November, at which point it will be moved to the Promenade Honoré II opposite the Maison des Associations A Casa d’i Soci.
