Moving thought

idAction Mobile is a cultural and philosophical caravan that roams the streets of Montreal and is aimed at its citizens, particularly those that are homeless (youth, Aboriginals). It carries on board a library, magazines, art and writing materials that serve to create a pretext for opening dialogues.

The caravan is an egalitarian space for exchanges: it promotes the reawakening of the creative and reflexive potential of participants to prevent and fight against the exclusion of a marginalized population. Actually, this is a variation on four wheels of our idAction program.

Each outing, our team is both composed of a facilitator -philosopher or artist- and a volunteer.

Goals:

  • Rise awareness of social issues
  • Pass along reflexive tools
  • Spark civic and cultural action
