Artists and arts workers working within complex community settings are often at risk of stress and the potential to burn out, particularly where communities and participants have or are experiencing trauma.

That’s why CAN, in partnership with Creative Recovery Network is presenting a FREE interactive forum on the need for self-care for workers engaged in community arts and cultural development (CACD).

Through a Q&A style panel and lively discussion, this forum will explore the pressures and challenges faced in CACD work and how artists and organisations can mitigate some of the risks. Creative Recovery Network’s Scotia Monkivitch will talk about how WA participants are part of this important national conversation.

Facilitated by Lockie MacDonald, panelists include community artists Marcelle Riley, Poppy van Oorde-Grainger, Karen Hethey and Scotia Monkivitch.

It’ll be held in the Great Southern Room at the State Library of WA from 5pm-8pm, Wednesday 11 October.

This professional development forum is FREE.
