A laureate of the Fondation Banque Populaire, she recently performed as a super soloist with the Antwerp Symphony Orchestra at the Flagey Concert Hall in Brussels, with the UAEH Orchestra in Mexico as well as with the Camerata Venia Orchestra conducted by Gleb Skvortsov.

In 2018, she performed live in front of 50,000 people at the French festival "Un Violon sur le Sable", offering a tribute to rock legend Johnny Hallyday. 

 

Passionate about chamber music, she has given recitals with renowned artists such as pianists Abdel Rahman El Bacha, Nicolas Angelich, violinists Régis Pasquier, Laurent Korcia, harpist Anja Linder or cellist Gary Hoffman.

Julie Sévilla-Fraysse is also a founding member of the Trio Klimt and, in parallel, she combines her classical career with unusual experiences such as her duet with the hip-hop dancer Yann Antonio.

 

Julie Sévilla-Fraysse is also the Artistic Director of CoCreate Humanity since April 2021 and is the official Ambassador of the association.

 

A large part of her professional career has been spent with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), in the field and at headquarters, in a variety of positions and functions. Hélène Félix-Bancharel then turned her career towards stress management consulting and training, using her initial training in psychology, her experience in the humanitarian world and additional training in victimology. This is how her career as a stress management and psychological support consultant began. 

 

At the age of eighteen, Hélène left her family and Paris for the Geneva area to study psychology. This was the beginning of a period of rebellion against what was expected of her in her family. This choice was also one of her first steps to try to understand how the human being works and it was followed by many others. Hélène found her first job in Nyon, in the department of addiction diseases at the Clinique La Métairie, a position she left to join the ICRC.

Her career began in 1991 with field missions in Iraq and Afghanistan, in contexts of extreme conflict and violence.

Some of the experiences she had during this period are still useful in her current work in understanding how people function in critical situations. She left the ICRC in 2007.

All these years in the humanitarian family have given her a different understanding of the world, an openness, a sense of priorities and a completely different relationship to the notion of emergency. Knowing how to put emergencies into perspective is something that helps her on a daily basis and in all areas, professional and personal. Throughout her professional career she has learned and understood the notion of otherness. 

 

For the past 15 years, Humapsy has enabled Hélène Félix-Bancharel to position herself as a mental health professional and to accompany people in transition. Hélène crossed the path of CoCreate Humanity (CCH) in December 2019, at the beginning of their activities, and she is very pleased to be able to bring her skills and experience to the development of their activities.

 

Denis Ricca is an administrator and board member of the Bioforce Humanitarian Training Center, he is also a member of the Ligue des Droits de l'Homme and resides in the Lyon region of France. He met the CCH team in September 2020 following numerous written exchanges via LinkedIn.

 

After a long career in the industry managing projects and teams in expatriation and in sometimes sensitive contexts, Denis chose to reconvert to humanitarian work.

He worked mainly for Handicap International - Humanity & Inclusion on the theme of reducing weapons-related violence, coordinating programs in the field in Africa and Asia, then as a technical advisor at the organization's headquarters in Lyon.

 

Faced with some potentially traumatic events, he worked to understand why resilience could vary among a group of individuals but also over time. For his own needs, and then for those of his teams, he worked to help manage stress, prevent burnout, provide peer support when needed, and develop defense mechanisms conducive to resilience. Resilience and well-being at work are central to Denis Ricca's concerns.

 

Laurent Haab met CoCreate Humanity in June 2021, during a charity concert in Grandvaux, and resides in the canton of Vaud, Switzerland.

 

After studies in the health field and several years of laboratory experience, Laurent Haab joined Sanofi in 1994 as manager of "senior contracts and licenses". His area of expertise covers the main areas inherent to the management of international commercial activities.
