Jude's research is available through, or by contacting her directly.

Jude Ortiz’s work in arts and community development aims to make the arts more accessible for everyone and to create opportunities for creative expression. As a jewellery maker and researcher, she promotes respectful relationships among diverse groups to build resilient communities that respect both people and the environment.

Her studies explore how artists and arts organizations, including jewellery makers like herself, contribute to the identity and economy of rural areas. She focuses on how the arts can help communities adapt to challenges, build strength, and create thriving local economies in rural, small urban, and Indigenous communities in Northern Ontario.
