Julie Sperling is an award-winning Canadian mosaicist camped out at the intersection of art, environment, science, and policy. Since 2014, she has dedicated her artistic practice almost exclusively to the issues of climate change and the Anthropocene. She has served as the City of Kitchener’s Artist in Residence, and the collaborative climate action mosaic she made with the community is now part of the city’s permanent collection. She firmly believes in the important role that artists can play as advocates, activists, and change-makers.
