EQUITY! Critical Self-Care

April 03, 2019

Dance Studio, The Al & Malka Green Artists' Health Centre, Toronto Western Hospital | 4:00 - 6:00PM

What’s this got to do with stress?

Using a health equity lens, we’ll explore shared sources of stress and how self-care practices can meaningfully support artists’ wellbeing in the context of precarious work and intersecting inequities. We’ll take a critical eye to self-care messaging that is geared towards self-sufficiency and productivity and come to understand self-care as health practices which foster greater control over our art and lives.

In this workshop, you can expect to:

  • Relate your own experiences as an artist to an equity-informed view of self-care
  • Create a personalized self-care template you can use to develop self-care practices, now and in the future
  • Exchange insight, experiences and stories with other participants (optional)

“The services provided by The Al & Malka Green Artists’ Health Centre have been invaluable; without the Joysanne Sidimus Fund, I would not have afforded the treatment and could not have paid to receive it elsewhere. The resources offered by this special place are indispensable to the artists of our community!”
