Syrus Marcus Ware Fellowship Launch

Syrus Marcus Ware Fellowship Launch

221A invites you to meet Fellow Syrus Marcus Ware  at this live stream, where he will present his practice, activism and research.  Syrus is a Vanier Scholar, visual artist, activist, curator, and educator. Using painting, drawing, textiles, installation, video and performance, Syrus works with and explores social justice frameworks, and Black activist culture. 

Syrus’ Fellowship will assemble a team of creators to produce a new series of speculative fiction stories for a book and an original podcast series. We also welcome æryka jourdaine hollis o’neil as the project’s Editorial & Creative Producer, who is an artist and academic with a focus on documentary media and Black Studies.  

Fellows at 221A
Since 2017, 221A has worked with 14 Fellows to conduct research over extended periods of time. Each Fellow receives a living-wage stipend and production support to lead new research on potential social, cultural or ecological infrastructure. Staff work alongside Fellows to resource and translate research into public education, learning programs and engaging plans to develop new infrastructure.
