Julia Borowicz is an urbanist with experience in community planning and non profit social justice work. She completed her undergraduate degree at the University of Toronto in Urban Studies, Human Geography and Political Science. She has worked with a number of organizations whose constituents include: women who have experienced violence, recent immigrants filing human rights claims and underserved communities and youth. She worked to deliver their mandate, while also addressing these issues through systemic change in the form of community development and policy reform. Additionally, she worked as an editor for FUSE Magazine—an urban, arts, culture, politics quarterly, creating a social media platform that looked at FUSE’s feminist legacy, particularly critical urban feminist, queer and indigenous solidarity practices. She has recently graduated from the MA Theories of Urban Practice at Parsons, The New School for Design. Her current endeavours as an urbanist are centered on critical socio-spatial design interventions that engage with issues of difference and foster multiple belonging.
