Golshifteh Farahani’s remarkable Ibiza journey on L’OFFICIEL IBIZA
Ibiza is one of the only places in Europe – perhaps along with Portugal – with such a density of conscious people trying to make a difference in the world. But I have a lot of worries for the island, because with the prices increasing, you are going to lose a lot of the artists and the people that give the island its special energy. People who have the means need to support those who don’t – the people who contribute in other ways. And the water situation in Ibiza is perilous – the island is getting hotter, there are more visitors putting pressure on the infrastructure and the wells are running dry. This is not an issue that we can afford to ignore. But I’m happy to be here, sitting at a table with a group of friends who are all having a positive impact on the planet. It’s a real privilege and there is so much love here. Home is where love is and where love travels. Ibiza to me is an anchor. Before I came here, my boat was just going round and round. Now, finally, my boat has an anchor.
