About the Event
Creativity requires vulnerability, innovation, energy, and commitment. Self-care is essential in this, but is often easier said than done. The pressures of the performing arts industry are well-known, and these pressures can impact our mental health. Whether it’s an opening night, festival season, or grants time; how do you take simple, effective and meaningful steps towards self-care?
This workshop aims to raise awareness of the importance of good mental health across the sector, addressing barriers to self-care and tools and techniques for addressing these barriers.
Designed for all performing arts workers, with a particular focus on independent makers, technical practitioners and arts workers, this is a workshop design to share knowledge, skills and ideas for individuals to understand and prioritise self-care, and promote positive mental health.
This workshop is one part of a program presented in partnership with the Arts Wellbeing Collective, aimed at promoting positive mental health for artists, practitioners and within arts organisations in Western Australia.
