Watch Pivots and pirouettes – careers and transitions, presented as part of Mental Health Matinées, a series of online presentations promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in the performing arts.

This is a tough time for so many people in our industry, and at times like these, we need more self-care not less. However, this is often easier said than done! These sessions give practical tools and techniques to help you navigate through COVID-19 and beyond.

COVID-19 has disrupted the industry, organisations and personal careers. You might be using this time to reflect on your career in the arts, and how you might want to reconfigure, diversify or transition into another role. This session is the perfect starting point for exploring new and creative approaches to career options in the arts industry at this unique time.
