Upcoming arts events and opportunities for artists living with disability
Take Time, Make Time. NEW workshops exploring mental health challenges.
Developed by Peer Workers with lived experience, these workshops are designed to explore, discover and start to map your road to recovery.
Mental health is important to all of us, particularly in these unprecedented times, yet it is a part of life we often push to one side. Busy lives get in the way of us caring for our mental health, as does a fear of feeling vulnerable if we share our mental health challenges.
Queensland Mental Health Week is an opportunity to bring communities together, reach out to those who need support, and shine a spotlight on the things we can all do to support mental health. (QMHW 2020)
So where better to shine a spotlight than in a theatre? InsideOutside Theatre Company has experience of working with people with disability, disadvantage and dementia and has partnered with Neami National and NeverLand Theatre to provide these brand new workshops.
- To help develop an understanding and awareness of mental health challenges in a fun, creative environment.
- To remove stigma and allow participants to manage their mental health journey in a more positive manner.
- To create new friendships and improve confidence and communication skills.
- To learn about self-care and how to practice and promote it.
All provided in a safe, welcoming and non-judgmental environment. Exercises and sessions have been adapted to ensure they are COVID-19 compliant.
Let’s Re-Imagine Together
The COVID-19 pandemic has completely disrupted the arts and cultural industries. The pandemic has illuminated pressures we were already feeling. It is bringing to light aspects of our industry many have long wanted to change, along with new issues we are now being forced to address.
Throughout October 2020, we invite you to engage with us via our online portal and through a series of online town hall discussions. In addition, there will be a range of focus groups that align with our key questions.
