Toronto Arts Foundation announced Syrus Marcus Ware as the 2017 recipient of the TD Arts Diversity Award. Ware received the award September 21 at a celebration of community-engaged artists.
The TD Arts Diversity Award is a $10,000 cash prize that celebrates an individual community-engaged artist making a significant contribution in Toronto by working collaboratively in, with and for communities.
“Toronto Arts Foundation shines a spotlight on our city’s artistic talent,” said Claire Hopkinson, Director and CEO, Toronto Arts Foundation. “Syrus’s work, in turn, shines a spotlight on members of his community by celebrating those who work to make this city a welcoming place for all.”
