Help us launch In’klu:siv Association!
In’klu:siv is Partilhar Distância, a Portuguese non profit association which is devoted to support and promote social inclusion and active citizenship for all abilities throughout accessible experiences on national and international territories.
We aim to create socio-sustainable tools to support access to music, sports and art events, as well as education and social awareness platforms encouraging the shift.
Our vision focuses on 'social awareness’, aiming to change the perception of diversities through the celebration of differences; with ‘accessibility’; wishing to offer equal opportunities and ‘inclusion’ supporting the differently abled integration in the communities, in those sector where it is not fully contemplated.
It is the progression of a decade of work by a group of people believing in full equality of human rights. Since 2009 we promoted and created initiatives which integrated individuals with functional diversity in various socio-cultural and economic areas.
The association has three main channels of interaction :
