2016 Leeway Transformation Award – $15,000

Julie Rainbow is a social research activist artist, who integrates critical thinking with 25 years of social work experience; while synthesizing and analyzing stories from elders into original artistic work. Elders who've turned their life's experiences into wisdom share their life experiences. Rainbow's social work experience allows her to listen deeply and uncover both the bold and the humble responses to life. In 1995, Julie was selected as a W.K. Kellogg Foundation International Leadership Fellow. The fellowship provided learning in seven countries on four different continents, further encouraging her to pursue her passion of documenting the lives of elders. Her book, Standing the Test of Time: Love Stories of African American Elders, published by Pilgrim Press in 2002, was a tribute African elders. Her artistic work is meant to bring honor and recognition to the aging population and is fueled by her professional training as a social worker. She studied Economics at Spelman College and earned a MSS from the Bryn Mawr College Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research.
