"An Inclusive World" is a travelling exhibition which broadens the definition of inclusive models through integration of art in education and art in society. The project is part of COPE NYC an interdisciplinary art and design organization that bridges communities. The travelling exhibition brings together self-taught and formally trained artists in order to exchange ideas and enrich communities without identifying labels. The artists, designers, and active contributors to the exhibition raise community awareness about diversity, differences, and inclusivity. "An Inclusive World" offers a comprehensive and innovative forum by holding lectures, presentations, and round table discussions that promote intercultural dialogues among different groups of people. As this inclusive exhibition travels to various places in the world, it embraces and explores our differences.
