Julia Mann, a 2021-2022 Fulbright Fellow to Hungary, is a recent graduate of Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois where she double majored in Theatre and Global Health Studies and minored in both Film & Media Studies and Business Institutions. While there, she was the Executive Director of Sit & Spin Productions, an experimental theatre collective, and the Producer of Griffin’s Tale Children’s Repertory Theatre—a touring group dedicated to adapting short stories written by Chicago elementary school students into performances.


With Fulbright’s support, she is currently spending 9 months in Budapest studying independent theatre companies. Her research investigates the impact of the changing availability of public funds for independent theatre artists on the content and form of the art they create. She is specifically interested in the intersection of arts and advocacy; particularly in participatory and documentary theatre/film. At the end of her grant period, she plans to move to New York City to begin a career working in production or journalism.
