JULIE POITRAS SANTOS  I'm a visual artist and writer, making performed installations and public projects. Since 2005, a component of my practice as an artist has involved creating walks. These projects have taken different forms; from community projects, to memorial or historical walks; walks that pursue ideas of pilgrimage, and walks that operate as performances and have a narrative component. Some of the projects have involved larger groups, while other projects have been created with small teams of performers and artists. Bringing writing more actively into my practice, I've encountered the deep relationship between walking and writing. You can see more of my work here.

I live in Portland, Maine and teach part time at Maine College of Art.
