Headshot of Fellow, Julie J
“I could not be more thrilled to be joining this cohort of artists in the Performance Project Fellowship program. Knowing that over the next year I will have a community to share work with, learn from, and grow alongside fills me with joy. We are living in transformative times, and artists are transformative beings. I’m grateful that University Settlement is giving us the encouragement to continue transforming the world, and the support that so many of us need.”
