“The importance of this prejudice [the presumption of equality of intelligence] should be emphasized because it colors the whole adventure. It results in people not being seen as people to be nursed but rather to be considered as interlocutors of a dialogue that still needs to be reinvented.”

Alain Farah, guest writer onboard the IdAction Mobile program

Do you wanna join the team ? A job opening as Communications Manager is available so take a chance!

Let it be said, let it be done : discover the photo album from the October IdAction workshops at Boulot Vers to experience again these moments of sharing and thinking. A new workshop cycle to come soon in the same place.
Thank you to every generous donors who supported us during our end-of-year campaign.  It was a beautiful sign of trust in our ability to create inclusive encounters between equals. Sincere thank you for your support.

○ The start of 2018 is going to be freezing, so consult the winter policies from the City of Montreal in order to redirect the people in a situation of homelessness that you meet towards community organizations which welcome those who are currently sleeping outside.

IncluVision on the field once again
 
In December, the project associated itself to the clinique mobile « Regard collectif » for a first visit at Chez Doris. Our mediation team worked with optometrists and opticians to offer both eye care and workshops for intellectual emancipation. The objective of this partnership? Make eye care more human.

2 weeks of formation in Haïti

With their excitement and smiles, a mediation team comprised of Alessia de Salis and William-Jacomo Beauchemin, went to Haïti in December in partnership with OXFAM Québec to train facilitators on intellectual mediation and philosophy for children. An article will soon be published on our blog and have a look on those photos taken by Lise Gantheret for OXFAM Haïti to get immersed in this exceptional adventure.

New workshop cycles in Indigenous communities

Trickster : Raconte-moi langue is going full steam ahead : a first mediation team composed of Jani Bellefleur-Kaltush, Alessia De Salis and Jani Greffe-Belanger is currently in Nutashkuan to facilitate playful and reflexive workshops about Indigenous languages. Four other projects from the program are expected in the upcoming weeks and months at Lac-Simon, Wemotaci, Pessamit and Mingan. A strong start of the year for our Indigenous hub!

Final stretch for the citizen consultation with  MR-63 and the Maison d'Innovation Sociale
 
Simon, Isabelle and Kena, facilitators at Exeko are completing the last workshops on the field. The objective is to ask the inhabitants about the strengths of their borough in terms of cultural offering, public developments or community life. So far, close to a hundred people have been met in the streets and through community organizations in the Montreal Sud-Ouest borough.

News from the team...
 
As 2018 starts, we say good-bye to Chloé Barrette-Bennington and Marie Tilbe who will be exploring new prospects. Many thanks to them for their energy and their commitment throughout their work.
... and the volunteers

○ We are glad to announce you the founding of a new duo of volunteers: Antoine Fallu and Maxime Rizard will be preparing, as a tandem, videos that recount experiences from the various invited artists who participate to our Métissages Urbains program.

○ Over the holidays, a group of volunteers gathered to prepare greeting cards for our participants.  Their work warmed the hearts of people in a situation of homelessness as they received the cards on December 26 during an IdAction Mobile workshop. A warm thank you to everyone !
