Connor Yuzwenko-Martin (he/him) is descended from settlers, and recognizes and strives every day to honour and act upon the fact that his work and accomplishments take place on Treaty 6 territory, primarily in the region of Amiskwaciy’waskahan, known as the settler city of Edmonton. He benefits from the land, water, and air shared by countless generations that have come before us and will come after us, and aims to live in harmony with this cycle.

Connor has nurtured a lifelong passion for theatre and accessibility since childhood. His recent work includes serving as the Deaf Consultant for Concrete Theatre’s production Songs My Mother Never Sung Me (2019) and various roles in Canada’s only Deaf arts festival, Sound Off (2017-19). In June 2020, Connor premiered his first independent performance, The Invisible Practice at Nextfest. Connor works with multiple Edmonton theatres and organizations to improve their engagement with the Deaf community through consultations, the creation of informational and promotional vlogs, and accessibility research. Currently, Connor operates the Instagram account for Deaf Spectrum and aims to gain permanent employment in the arts sector in Canada. His primary goal is to act as a communications liaison between multiple theatres and groups in order to bring greater consistency to the various inclusion efforts being put forth through the coordination of events, communications management, and other facilitation roles – as well as pursuing his own art!

Connor completed a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science at the University of Alberta (2014) and is currently completing a Public Relations diploma at MacEwan University.
