In January of 2012, Julie participated in a performance art/panel discussion facilitated by artist Suzanne Lacey as part of her Three Weeks in January project.
The discussion was entitled: “Storying Rape: A Cross-Disciplinary Conversation at the Top of City Hall”
Taking place high atop City Hall, this ninety-minute private conversation with nine civic and cultural leaders focused on how the narrative of rape is shaped in our society and by whom; and asks how reframing this narrative might broaden public understanding and potentially reduce the incidence and/or harm from violence. This is a performance in the tradition of the art-life works of Los Angeles artists in the 1970s, where people enact themselves in an event that is both art and politics. More than twenty journalists will blogged and tweeted live on the conversation to their social media networks.
