The Artists Self-Care Guide is designed for artists by artists! In this workshop, artists are empowered with useful information, tools and strategies to manage mental and emotional stress while pursuing a creative career or working in the entertainment industry. Artists will develop a self-care plan that can be used before and after auditions, rehearsals, shows, productions and over-all in their day-to-day lives. Our mission is to create a culture of self-care within the arts across the country and around the globe. Artists Lives Matter!
