JUSTINE WOLF WILLIAMS (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, filmmaker, creative producer, educator and coach.
She holds an MFA in Performance & New Media from CUNY’s Brooklyn College (one of the only grad programs in the world dedicated to interdisciplinary collaboration), and an MA in International Affairs from the New School for Social Research, where she focused on Media and Culture. At the Yale School of Drama and at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, Justine leads courses based in theories of play, approaches to creative process and the principles of collaboration, and she contributes to the pedagogical design and ongoing work of Anti-Oppressive & Anti-Racist theater practices.
Justine believes in the innate creativity and creative resilience of individuals, and in the power of collaboration, to imagine and bring about a more playful, empathetic, just and liberated world. This commitment to personal/social imagination & transformation has led her to work with and learn from artists, activists and social/creative entrepreneurs throughout Europe, Africa, South America and in all the five boroughs of NYC where she calls home.
As an artist, Justine has received support from Queer|Art, Abrons Arts, Dixon Place and The Orchard Project to create new work. Original projects have been developed & presented at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Leslie Lohman Museum of Art, The Public Theater, and Sibiu International Theatre Festival in Romania, among many others, and her films have screened at film festivals world-wide.
Justine lives in Brooklyn with her partner and son. She's currently writing a book entitled, “The Art of Play”, exploring the possibilities of play as a creative and collaborative tool, and as a means towards personal and collective liberation.
