Artist Wellness and Professional Development
We believe that everyone deserves the right to access information that contributes to reaching their full potential, which is one of the reasons why we are committed to promoting professional development activities for artists.
Through our offerings in artist wellness and professional development, we create links with arts and non-arts organizations to deliver workshops for artists and arts facilitators wanting to engage in practices that acknowledge and respect people’s individual identities. We also engage artists in conversations that explore individual and systemic power imbalances as a way to promote a deep investigation of our communities and the world around us. As artists supporting and working with various diverse communities, we believe that we hold a social and civic responsibility to create safe spaces where everyone has access to opportunities and the ability to reach their potential.
We offer training and practice in the following areas:
- Holistic wellness and mental health
- Financial literacy
- Cultural competence and anti-oppression
