Over the past twelve years, I have been creating and implementing cultural and social projects, both as a manager and a consultant. I co-founded Exeko in 2006: this non-profit organization is dedicated to the social inclusion of the most marginalized populations, through educational and cultural projects. Exeko questions how to make knowledge more accessible, and makes a point of passing on and sharing tools that lead to social inclusion for marginalized populations, including the Native communities, prisons, and youths at risk.
Cofounder and producer at New Democracy Productions (based in Los Angeles) and P2P Productions (in Canada). Both organizations are dedicated to creating media (movies, exhibitions, and books) that put an emphasis on everyone’s abilities to reach a level of self-fulfillment and create positive change in the world.
I have been working with population at risk for ten years; I am one of the founding member of “Cathédrale et Bazar” (Cathedral and Bazaar), a green coop dedicated to creators and whose mission is to enable them to stay in downtown Montreal.
Through my projects, writings, conferences, or forums I created, I am always questioning the dynamics and the links between social innovation, inclusion, culture, and education.
