Artists Wellness Series

StreetARToronto in partnership with MUSE Arts will be convening an Artists Wellness Series as Free Events to be held once a month for three consecutive months: February, March and April. Presented as panel discussions, the conversations with artists are intended to hold space to discuss Mental Health and Wellness as well as to share wise practices.

The first session Artivism & Mental Health will take place Thursday, February 25 from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm.

Artivism & Mental Health explores the realities of leading and promoting social change. Advocating for change in society can lead to major rewards, however, the journey can sometimes take a toll on our mental wellbeing. The panel discussions will explore how to take care of ourselves as we continue working in creating a better world.
