Julie Adler was a Producer for The Tibet Connection from 2006 to 2009. She is a visual and performance artist who uses a variety of media including, but not limited to painting and drawing, music, installation, and video. She holds an MFA in Visual Arts and Music (Voice) from California Institute of the Arts and BFA from Cooper Union in New York. She also did a year residency in Paris at the Ecole des Beaux Arts, in studio with artist Annette Messager and guidance from Mona Hatoum.
Julie was born and raised in Los Angeles, but took to the road early, and has lived in Paris, Edinburgh, London and New York. She considers her resettlement back in LA part of an ongoing artistic exploration. While at Cal Arts, she served on the Intercultural Arts committee which promoted world music and art. In addition, she received a Durfee Foundation grant to travel to the Altai Mountains of China in search of throat singers. She has also traveled to Outer Mongolia, Central America, India, Tibet and Europe. She has helped produce music events around L.A., including the World Festival of Sacred Music, the Americas, EARJAM and more recently, Call & Response, a benefit for Tibetan monks presenting Western and Tibetan music on one stage at REDCAT theatre.
As an writer and editor, she has conducted interviews and done articles for various local yoga and Buddhist publications and worked on the book Portraits of Tibetan Buddhist Masters (University of California Press, 2005) and most recently was co-producer and writer/editor on Living Wisdom with the Dalai Lama (Sounds True, 2006).
