What is it?
Exeko, in collaboration with the Groupe des onze formed by eleven of the largest Montreal cultural institutions, has conceived the Inclusive Culture Laboratory, a three-year project under the patronage of the Canadian Commission for UNESCO (CCUNESCO).
This laboratory combines participatory research, creation-research and action-research to encourage accessibility to the institutional field of culture by identifying and spreading better practices of inclusion.
This project is carried out in collaboration with the BAnQ, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montréal, La Maison Théâtre, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Opéra de Montréal, l’Orchestre Métropolitain, the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, the Bourgie Hall, the Société de la Place des Arts de Montréal, the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde, the TOHU, also The Muses, La Maison Tangente, Les Impatients, La maison de la Syrie, the PCEIM, the AMDI, L’Itinéraire, the Montreal coalition of LGBT Youth Groups et le collective Bout du monde.
I realize that a piece of art can take more time
to be though than created,
and that beauty depends on the look and open-mindedness
of the person watching it.
