Art, Work and Culture: Managing a Healthy Life/Work Balance in the Arts
Date: Monday 26 June 2017
Where: Australia Council for the Arts
Admission: Free for SAMAG Members
Non-Members: $20, Student: $10 via Eventbrite
This panel discussion will drill down into the intersections of professional and personal life in the arts. The arts is a sector that offers great potential for emotional rewards, but is also a sector dominated by precarity, a sector that is resource-scarce, time-poor and often extremely stressful. In such a cultural landscape, how can arts professionals manage burnout, practice self-care and ensure the continued emotional and physical well-being of both themselves and their families? How might artists and arts workers cultivate a sustainable balance as parents and arts professionals? What are organisations doing to provide care and wellbeing for their employees and the artists they engage? Do we look after staff in the arts with well-being programs like organisations in other sectors do? What do we do well? How might we do better?
