Slate Workshop: Freelancer’s Toolkit - Resilience & Wellbeing for Artists

Live Theatre, Newcastle

Wed 23 May

10am - 2pm

A workshop for emerging to mid-career Black* artists to think, converse, plan and collaborate.

Led by Tina Simbo with support from Slate Enabler Degna Stone, this workshop is for artists and arts practitioners who are keen to address and evolve their wellbeing and resilience, as part of progressing their career and practice.

Within a safe space of solidarity, we will ask questions of ourselves that we may not often have the time, space nor opportunity to think about. During the workshop, we will focus on the tools, mindset and habits we need to incorporate within our working and everyday lives.

We want to support your wellbeing and help you flourish.

She has facilitated group work with people from diverse communities for over 16 years whilst working in the voluntary and community sector. In recent years, Tina has worked predominantly with minority ethnic women, including survivors of trauma. She believes in taking a holistic approach towards maintaining health and well-being and centres the importance of self-care. Her work promotes personal reflection and peer support, and is action oriented/soluction focused.
