Workman Arts is excited to announce #BigFeels: Creating Space for Mental Health in the Arts, taking place May 28-30, 2018 in Toronto.

Join us to explore engaging topics that relate to:

  • Resource sharing to support more equitable, engaging and inclusive spaces;
  • How we better support artists with mental health lived experiences;
  • Mindfulness towards better incorporating processes and approaches to mental wellness within our organizations;
  • Creating connections with youth and racialized communities to have more meaningful conversations around mental health.

Presenters include keynote speaker Syrus Marcus Ware; Elder Little Brown Bear leading a workshop on Sacred Aboriginal Healing and leading one-on-one discussions with participants; exploring Mad Art and the Political Aesthetics of a Social Movement with Jenna Reid, Twoey Gray and Cassandra Myers; Building a Culture of Positive Workplace Mental Health with Mike Prosserman; and many more!

Explore our Community Resource Sharing area and learn about organizations that are doing work to support mental health, while also participating in some community arts making stations. #BigFeels will bring together artists with lived experience, arts organizations, advocacy and support mental health organizations and diverse community members to explore and learn together.
