A project of Exeko's social innovation laboratory
IncluVision is a project of Exeko’s social innovation laboratory aiming to foster accessibility to knowledge and culture through actions on limiting factors of visual health care accessibility in urban areas and in Canada’s Great North.
From the perspective of reinforcing and promoting social inclusion and intellectual emancipation initiatives, this project uses different accessibility strategies in order to foster citizen mobilisation and action towards a more inclusive, creative and critical thinking society.
IncluVIsion adopts a multidisciplinary approach. We collaborate with visual health care specialists, community organizations, health, education and culture programs and of course, citizens.
By mobilising members of the community to become resource persons, the project anchors itself in a logic that is sensitive to local issues and cultural codes already in place.
