Artist Speakeasy > Looking after yourself through change and uncertainty
There’s no guidebook for a pandemic.

How to navigate the journey we are on.

This event aims to improve the wellbeing of practicing artists during the pandemic. Using tools that will help you achieve a sense of security for the future, boosted self-esteem, stronger connections in our communities and, most importantly, some room to breathe.

With Kirsty Ritchie from The Arts Wellbeing Collective, we'll focus on looking after yourself through change and uncertainty covering a range of concepts and strategies to help you, including:
- The phases and stages we experience during times of change and uncertainty
o what they are
o what they look and feel like
o what we need to help us move through them well
- Practical tips and strategies to look after your mental health and wellbeing during times of disruption

The Arts Wellbeing Collective is an Arts Centre Melbourne initiative that comprises a consortium of arts and cultural organisations who work together to promote positive mental health and wellbeing in the performing arts. AWC identifies, explores and understands systems, cultures and ways of working in the arts that may have a negative impact on mental health, and then creates a range of initiatives to address these challenges.

Kirsty Ritchie initially trained as a professional dancer at The Australian Ballet School and went on to tour and perform with The Australian Ballet and a number of other companies for several years. Kirsty retrained in organisational development and change management, holding senior roles with Myer, Telstra and Bupa, before joining Arts Centre Melbourne in 2018 as the Associate Director, Learning and Organisational Development at Arts Centre Melbourne.

Presented in collaboration with The Arts Wellbeing Collective, Arts Centre Melbourne.
