Proud + Active Member on the Board of Directors at PTC (Playwrights Theatre Centre).
Stacy Sherlock received her BFA in technical theatre design and production management from UBC in 2009. While attending UBC she was part of the Disability Resource Group, renamed Access + Diversity, for assistance with her Fragrancing Allergy + MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities). From here, her passion for providing education and engaging in discussion on invisible disability grew. In 2012 she facilitated an installation for Toronto Nuit Blanche with Abilities Art Festival + Jan Derbyshire. This production brought together artists of differing ability for roaming site specific audio plays engaging the city on the vast spectrum of needs, while educating the differently-abled theatre community to hone and practise their skills further. Stacy has created an online support group and facilitated meet-up opportunities to end the stigmatization and isolation of MCS in the lower mainland. As part of the 2017 BC Nurses Union Human Rights + Equity Conference, Stacy was asked to create a session on Invisible Disability + Establishing Safe Space: Dependency on Allies. The ConnecTra Society recently invited Stacy back to participate as a service provider in the 2019 Abilities Expo. She is honoured to contribute once again for the differently-abled community + engage further in the support network discussion.
As a Cancer Survivor, Stacy partnered with YACC to create an accessible profile discussing her experiences + providing insights on navigating Transitional Cell Carcinoma.

As a personal passion, Stacy looks forward to developing off-grid sustainable housing akin to the architectural principals of Michael Reynolds. She will aim to create households built with the vast spectrum and accessibility at the forefront of design. Rather than modifying or altering spaces to meet the needs of habitants, building designs with those principals at the forefront of creation would generate satisfied communities.
