About the facilitator:
Syrus Marcus Ware is a visual artist, community mobilizer, educator and researcher pursuing his PhD studies in the Faculty of Environmental Studies at York University. Syrus holds degrees in Art History, Visual Studies (University of Toronto) and Sociology and Equity Studies (OISE). In 2014, he was awarded the Slyff Fellowship/Graduate Fellowship for Academic Distinction by York University. Syrus’ research focuses on experiences of marginality and the ways that the presence of racialized, trans and disabled people can challenge ‘static’ social environments. Syrus has authored several book chapters, journal articles and peer-reviewed publications about disability, the diversification of museums, trans parenting and sexual health for trans MSM, including the widely cited “How Disability Studies Stays White and What Kind of White it Stays” and “Going Boldly Where Few Men Have Gone Before: One Trans Man’s Experience of a Fertility Clinic and Insemination” (Sumach, 2009). In 2009, Syrus coedited the Journal of Museum Education issue Building Diversity in Museums with Gillian McIntyre. Syrus was voted “Best Queer Activist” by Now Magazine (2005) and was awarded the Steinert and Ferreiro Award (2012) for LGBT community leadership and activism.

About the Space:
Venus Envy is a physically accessible space. We have an automatic door, no steps and a gender inclusive bathroom big enough for most mobility devices.
We use foldable, plastic chairs for our workshops. We have three softer chairs that we're happy to reserve if you get in touch with us before the workshop.
We do sell some scented products so we're unfortunately not able to make this a scent-free space. However, we do ask that guests refrain from wearing strongly scented products.

We're happy to book ASL interpretation for any of our workshops! Please get in touch with us in advance of the workshop if you would like us to book interpreters. At minimum, we will need one week's notice, but the earlier you can make your request, the better.
