Marcus Marshall Bio:
26 year old Multiple disciplinary artist and Director of events and experience of ethos lab (black led stem and tech youth initiative located in Surrey). Born and raised in Vancouver.
The Ethọ́s Lab will leverage the cooperative model to develop networked, members only, youth spaces (inclusive of all youth) that will be located in major urban centres that reflect their technological reality. Initiated in Metro Vancouver, the intent is that these youth spaces will scale to other urban centres.
Through this project we are hoping to inspire a legacy of black leadership as well as answer the question: “what might youth place/space making look like when you centre the humanity of the black experience?”
