About Exeko
Exeko puts intellectual and artistic creativity to work to drive an inclusive and emancipatory social transformation. It is an approach that, first and foremost, acknowledges everyone’s capacity to think, analyze, act, create and be a stakeholder in society: it presumes the equality of all intellects.

About the discussion leaders
Anne Florentiny is a Martinican artist who holds a degree in visual arts and dance. In their work they examine sensuality, sexuality and eroticism, as well as how the latter engage with spirituality and the sacred. Through practices of performance, photography and video, they establish rituals and attempt to reclaim the area of the sacred in the imaginative space of the body. How can our bodies be used as tools of resistance to oppressive constructs? Such is the quest they pursue through a decolonizing approach, notably through the incorporation into their practice of self-care and healing mechanisms.

Ducakis Desinat, a Montrealer of Haitian origin, has worked as a mediator and research coordinator at Exeko since 2019. Trained in philosophy at the University of Ottawa, he is pursuing a doctorate in sociology. His areas of interest include cultural sociology, the relationship between art and society, and the phenomenon of diaspora.


Location: This activity will take place in the Basquiat Exploration Zone on the 3rd floor of the Jean-Noël Desmarais Pavilion.
