Artists Wellness Series: Relocation and Mental Health

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.

Our third and last session on this Artist Wellness series; “Relocation and Mental Health” will take place on Thursday, April 29th from 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm ET.

“Relocation and Mental Health” will explore the impact of migration, settlement on artists‘ mental health, and furthers the conversation on the supports needed for newcomers and recently arrived artists so they can thrive in their new homes.
