We get personal with Vancouver, Canada artist Margaux Wosk (they/them) and discuss many subjects around mental health, autism and disability activism. Margaux shares their self discovery journey and navigating how they identified they were autistic only a few years ago at the age of 28. They also explain how society and businesses may appear to be inclusive of autistic folx and those living with learning disabilities, while this may not be the reality.
Margaux is also a talented artist/designer and independent small business owner of the Etsy Shop, Retrophiliac (link to their shop is below)! They create their own designs inspired by their own experiences with autism, neurodiversity and the LGBTQIA2S+ community, and put them onto wearable art such as pins, necklaces, garments and more. They talk about the programs and support resources that exist to assist people like Margaux to have an equal opportunity at being a successful entrepreneur.
This truly is an inspiring and colourful 'real-talk' edition of Getting Jewcy! Oh and did we also mention Margaux is also a fellow M.O.T?! :)
