“As the next generation of creatives entering the industry, I believe that we must take initiative and continue to shape it into a safe space in which everyone can thrive. Mental health and wellbeing is a necessity for all. They come hand in hand with the career longevity that we are all striving for. We want to hear from YOU, we want to hear what you need and how we can provide it for you”.
“Equity, inclusion and diversity are the buzz words of the industry – but what does this really mean for those living in the intersections?
We are creating a space for anonymous, authentic, unapologetic and honest discussions on the realities of being a QTPOC individual in the Arts.
We want to change the way the Arts industry engages with and supports QTPOC individuals and their mental health, and to help improve the wider sector”.
“This group has been formed as a safe space for women to come together and have their voices heard, relay their experiences of working in the Arts (both good and bad), and help to develop new ideas and initiatives that can be put in place to help improve the mental health and wellbeing of women in the industry, both now and for future generations”.
“There are a lot of people working in the Arts that have experienced trauma at some point in their life, including myself.
This group is a place for those who have to come together and discuss how it has effected us personally and professionally, what we have done to heal, and how we can work together to improve the mental health and wellbeing support available within the Arts for people who still feel the effects of their trauma”.
