Youssef Shoufan pour Exeko
Ten years already, magnificent. Your utopia, your determination, your creation. Your capacity and your uniting talent … One thing is certain, what you have planted grows and grows, the best thing being it imposes a and also many continuities … One day, I wrote and said “It isn’t by thinking small that we become tall” Today, your original grand projects, you’ve made them available to all even the tiniest. That is thinking large.

 Jean Rok, founder of En piste,
ex-director of the École Nationale de Cirque
and Exeko's friend
You wish to learn more about the Presumption of Equality of Intelligence? Then don’t wait to discover the illustrated definition by the talented artist Lili Sohn. It is a fine and humorous explanation that you will find in her comic “Portrait de rue”. Animation is more your style? Marine Lestrade’s stop-motion will allow you to easily grasp our approach. 

What’s better with all this cold and snow than looking back on our 10th anniversary celebrations at the Village au Pied du Courant this summer.
Discover through a video intellectual mediation, practice that we’ve worked to develop through the years, recognized by the Canadian Commission for UNESCO, that consist in creating egalitarian spaces in which we can think collectively, awaken our minds, listen to each other and speak up about tomorrow’s society we wish for. A capsule by Ezra Bridgman during the Quelques émancipations : Regards croisés sur la médiation intellectuelle et des pratiques de transformations sociales Seminar.

Many donations
for Libre-Library
After two Christmas deliveries of over 10 boxes of books for the shelves of the micro-librairies at The Old Brewery Mission and the Acceuil Bonneau, it’s now the return of the "Sorting-Fridays". A monthly gathering of Exeko’s team (volunteers, mediators and members of the office) allowing the sorting of the hundreds of donation books we receive around a potluck meal. A pleasant way to actualize the contents of the Bibliosource in order to better respond to the demands from the field or of our different projects and partners.
