Going on tour is great fun, and one of the cornerstones of our thriving performing arts sector. But, what are the mental health impacts we should consider as we continue to navigate living, working and touring with the impact of COVID-19?
This session explores how you can take steps to care for your mental health – and the mental health of your tour mates – through this unique time, and ensure COVID-19 doesn’t take away from the joy of exploring towns and cities, delivering shows to new audiences, meeting people and making lifelong friends.
Presented by Dr Jane Miskovic-Wheatley, Sage Psychology.
Jane is a NIDA graduate in Directing, and currently works as a clinical psychologist who consults to companies such as Bell Shakespeare, Arts on Tour and CDP Theatre Producers and is the research stream lead for the InsideOut Institute for Eating Disorders, University of Sydney.
Jane is also a large event specialist choreographer with extensive touring experience herself, and has worked on Pan American, Commonwealth and Olympic Games Ceremonies.
Session presented in partnership with Regional Arts Victoria.
