Thomas Tajo is a blind researcher and disability activist, and president of a newly founded international non-profit organization, Vision Inclusive, which seeks to bring people with and without disabilities together to build and promote a culture of openness. Tajo was born into an aboriginal/tribal family in Northeast India and today lives and works in Belgium.

Rapid Response Project

Tajo proposes to encourage the establishment of more inclusive and multi-sensory digital dating platforms, particularly for those who are more reliant on the use of non-visual senses, such as blind and partially sighted people and those with varying visual abilities due to age, and for those who come from oral cultures and people with lower levels of literacy.

Eyebeam models a new approach to artist-led creation for the public good; we are a non-profit that provides significant professional support and money to exceptional artists for the realization of important ideas that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Nobody else is doing this.
