Inclusion comprehends people’s involvement and empowerment. When people are included, their worth is recognized and respected.  It increases innovation and creativity.  Yet in many aspects of community life, we fail to facilitate inclusivity. In Ukraine and in Georgia EaP Civil Society Fellows have been documenting and promoting practices that support more inclusivity in cultural institutions, artistic events, and youth-oriented activities.  These inclusive practices hold valuable lessons for all those committed to ensuring diversity and equality in our communities.
