About the Director

Justice Jamal Jones (they/them) is a multidisciplinary artist based in New York City. They have worked in production, creative direction, styling, and as talent at Disney on Broadway, Vogue Italia, Paper Magazine, and Maybelline New York. As a Black queer individual in the arts industry, Justice has often been boxed in as one or another of their disciplines. Their hope is to revolt against this notion - to "cultivate a vast diverse artistic agriculture” that finds its rooting in community.
