Artists and cultural workers who work in community arts and cultural development tend to be compassionate people often faced with complex issues and traumas in the communities they work with.
Join us to find out how to keep on caring, while maintaining your own health and wellbeing. CAN is hosting an opportunity for artists in community arts and cultural development to hear from an experienced facilitator sharing ways to manage compassion fatigue for sustainable practice.
Andrew Kazim, Practice Consultant for Youth at Anglicare WA, who has over ten year’s experience working with clients with complex issues in a community setting, will talk about compassion fatigue in the workplace – how to recognise the signs, the impact on our work and ways to minimise its effects.
Collectively, we will discuss some of the experiences faced by artists and arts workers on the coalface of community work, and how to care for ourselves so that we can continue to care for the communities we work with.

Time: 1.30 pm – 3.30 pm

Level 1, Meeting Room (large)
