Understanding self and identity(opens in new window)
Monday, 21 September 2020
3pm to 4pm
In the arts, we’re united by our shared passion for storytelling, performance, and the power of theatre to change lives. Sometimes, though, we can confuse who we are with what we do, and our identity becomes wrapped up with our work, and this has been magnified through COVID-19. This session will provide strategies to help artist cope with this challenging COVID-19 period, and explore ways in which we can reflect on our self, and find meaning, values and identity beyond our role in the arts.
Presented by psychologist, facilitator and lecturer, Chris Cheers.
