Workshop 6: Theatre
Working in the arts: How to live on the edge of chaos

facilitated by Louize Carroll, Chartered Psychologist and musician

Thursday 1 April, 12.30pm (online)

UPDATE: This workshop is fully booked

From Waterford Healing Arts Trust in partnership with the Arts Council.
Part of an online series of panel discussions, workshops and resources seeking to strengthen resilience, restore confidence and promote connectedness across the arts sector.

Our sincere appreciation to our associate organisation Theatre Forum for their support and guidance in curating this Theatre strand together.

About this workshop:
The essence of every artist and art form professional is an ability to tap into that which lies unseen, unheard and misunderstood, and to transform it into something tangible and meaningful for the audience. But what happens when the creative sector upon which such livelihoods are built is threatened? How can we learn to channel what we know about creativity, to not only live, but to thrive on the edge of chaos?
