Event description
A one-day online workshop focusing on emotional wellbeing for artists working in the performing arts.

About this Event

Embrace, Protein’s ongoing professional development programme includes practical and reflective work and allows space for sharing and discourse around working in or practicing dance today.

“Research shows that mental health problems are higher for those working in the performing arts compared to the general population” - Equity

Protein is keen to join the conversation about dance and emotional wellbeing. During this Embrace we aim to raise awareness of emotional wellbeing for artists working across the performing arts, introduce coping mechanisms for creative minds and offer support tools for artists to understand and manage their emotional wellbeing.

Guest speakers include Protein dance artist Stuart Waters and psychotherapist and trainer Joy Griffiths on using the psychotherapy Framework of Human Givens, as well as an introduction by Louise Granger to Equity’s ground-breaking support system for members.

The workshop is suitable for dancers, performers, actors, musicians, theatre makers, choreographers and artists from all performance backgrounds.

The workshop is online via Zoom.
