Jovan Julien currently makes home in Atlanta, Georgia, by way of Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Jersey, and Haiti. After 21 years being incubated in the North, they began to make their way back towards the beloved Caribbean. As a storyteller, organizer, and facilitant educator, Jovan has been working for years in the practice of building Beloved Community through the practice of radical witnessing. Whether as a part of the “Beyond Borders: Peoples of the Caribbean and Latin America” radio collective that broadcasts weekly, a regional organizer at Project South, a Ph.D student at Georgia Institute of Technology, or most important a member of their communities, Jovan works tirelessly to design elements both analog and digital to bring community closer together. Whether in the South of the United States, or the greater Caribbean, Jovan’s current work focused on transformational change by building tools for open and honest dialogue and radical democratic governance by community. As a photographer interested in education, a facilitator working to protect memory, and an engineer interested in the long term sustainability of their community, Jovan brings a particular focus to developing group practices and midwiving our most radical dreams into existence.
