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.
