Guelph, ON – March 21, 2016 – On Sunday April 10 Guelph Arts Council presents Be Well, Be Inspired, a wellness workshop for creative people. The workshop is delivered and sponsored by The Wellness Collaborative, and will be held from 10 am to 2 pm at Studio 404, 404 York Rd., Guelph.
Artists and arts workers are passionate people who love their work. However, it’s work that’s often undervalued, and characterized by low or sporadic income, few employment benefits, long and irregular hours, requests to work for free, and high expectations. Day to day, how can artists and arts workers nourish their minds, bodies and spirits to prevent burnout and other health issues?
The therapists at The Wellness Collaborative are experts at helping people take charge of their mental and physical wellness. For creative workers, this workshop will address questions like: “How can I maintain the joy of creating?”, “How do I ask for fair pay for my work?”, and “How do I find balance while juggling multiple roles?”. Participants will learn strategies for dealing with anxiety, stress, and self-doubt, so inspiration can take centre stage in their lives.
Registration fees are $25 for Guelph Arts Council members, and $35 for non-members. A light brunch is included. Register online at https://form.jotform.com/60706332548960. For more information call Guelph Arts Council at 519-836-3280 or visit guelpharts.ca.
Catch us on Inside Guelph (Rogers TV cable channel 20) this Friday, April 1, at noon. Segment will repeat over the weekend.
