The Radical Act of Self-Care: Sustaining Yourself as a Leader
How as arts education leaders do we sustain ourselves mentally, physically, and creatively? This workshop will focus on the ways in which movement, writing, and visual art can be forms of personal and collective healing and renewal. Participants will leave with the understanding that self-care is a radical act. Sustaining yourself personally can help you cope with feelings of isolation, exhaustion, and overload that often come with the day-to-day responsibilities of leading an organization or team; heal from toxic environments; and generate hope in these uncertain times. We'll explore a variety of strategies and activities you can use in your own self practice and in your community environments (schools, organizations, homes, studios). Track: Leadership Development.
