BigFeels: Post Radical Growth Symposium: Making Space for Mental Health in the Arts

Hosted by Workman Arts

The “BigFeels: Post Radical Growth Symposium: Making Space for Mental Health in the Arts“ is a three-day online symposium for the arts sector. This symposium will be a site of gathering and celebration for artists, communities, and a sector that has continued to shift through adversity and arrive into various states of individual and collective radical growth. BigFeels: Post Radical Growth highlights the importance of an intersectional approach when considering and engaging with mental health themes. We invite you to engage critically with these topics through the symposium’s programming led by Workman Art members ranging from panel discussions, workshops and performances!


The symposium will be hosted entirely virtually. Pre-registration for the symposium programming is required. All symposium events are Free/Pay-What-You Wish.

Closed Captioning services will be provided via zoom.

Self-Care Kits are available on-site. Contact Membership & Hospital Programs Manager Raine Laurent-Eugène at Raine_LaurentEugene@workmanarts.com.
