In the arts industry, performers subject themselves to all kinds of vulnerabilities. While learning to survive in an industry characterized by constant flux, we want to ask performers: 'What gives?' in their process of adapting to this pressure cooker.
‘How do I continue working 14-16 hour days in a sustainable way? Is there any other option that is financially sustainable?’
‘When is it acceptable to say NO, or does saying no affect the growth of my career?’
‘What is anxiety? (This is a tough industry. I have to be tough.)’
‘What is hustling?’
‘How do I step out of a character?’
‘Am I taking care of myself?’
‘What IS taking care of myself?’
We bring you Dialogue SERIES 'Space of Taboos': Huh? Artist Wellness?? In this dialogue, we hope to create a safe space for an open and honest sharing. We hope to address the concept of Mental Wellness specific to performers in the arts industry. However, solutions are not a must. This is hopefully, a first step in raising awareness, enlivening and empowering our community.
Panel includes: Michele Lim, Alvin Tan, Li-Anne Tan, moderated by Kuo Jian Hong.
During the event, participants have the option of submitting questions anonymously.

The most important aspect of an arts education for a child is its integration within culture itself. Culture sets forth the foundation on which a country is built upon: its direction, pathways and values. The education of arts and culture very much emphasizes the development of character.
