Hello, my name is Julie Ganey and I make art. As a teaching artist, I create performance pieces and stories with collaborators ages 5-85. As an actor, I work with Chicago theaters such as Victory Gardens, Steppenwolf, 16th Street Theatre, Goodman, Northlight, and Chicago Dramatists. And as a writer, I work with 2nd Story, a collective of story-makers and story-lovers working together to build community through the power of storytelling. Through my work with 2nd Story, I’ve also developed a number of solo shows, which have been performed around the Midwest.

Since sometime in the 90′s, I’ve worked with the award-winning comedy troupe, Wavelength. We perform nationwide for educators and corporations, and specialize in professional development. The ongoing experience has taught me to bring a sense of humor to everything I do.

If you are in need of original programing, we should talk. I’ve created programs on everything from bullying prevention and learning communities to storytelling and improvisation. Synthesizing ideas and crafting them into experiential events is my specialty.

With the Powerful Arriving Leaders from Louisville, KY
