Zadig & Voltaire is committed to philanthropy and bringing awareness to organizations that augment the state of communities around them. In response to this year’s tumult we have launched ‘Art Is Hope’ a campaign that highlights and supports these groups. So far we have partnered with National Alliance on Mental Illness, Black Art In America and L.A. Dance Project.

Art is a core pillar of the house and is also the source of positivity and inspiration during uncertain times. In collaboration with artists such as; Jormi Graterol, Amanda Wachob, Najee Dorsey, Khalif Thompson and Benjamin Millepied and many more we have been able to share the missions of these organizations and their formidable work.

L.A. Dance Project

L.A. Dance Project (LADP) expands the boundaries of dance as an art form and redefines how we interact and relate with movement in the modern world. Informed by collaborative partnerships with traditional and emerging artists, performance work, commissions, residencies, and community programming, our project is to inspire, create, educate and change perspectives through the accessible and transformative power of dance in Los Angeles and around the world. L.A. Dance Project (LADP) was founded in 2012 under the direction of former New York City Ballet principal dancer and celebrated choreographer Benjamin Millepied. Mr. Millepied chose Los Angeles because the city inspired him with its rich history of creativity and artistic freedom. In October 2017 LADP opened the doors to its new home in the downtown Los Angeles’ Arts District. This significant move allowed LADP to present regularly, including the groundbreaking L.A. Dances Festival in 2019, keep ticket prices accessible and affordable, and launch an array of new programs and initiatives including artistic residencies, choreographic commissions, a summer dance intensive in partnership with The Gabriella Foundation, a studio rentals program, public classes and workshops, and other special events. In 2020, LADP launched an original digital dance platform, delivering dance driven fitness classes, art driven content, and premieres of new works to a global virtual audience.
