Amidst the pandemic, inflation, recession and on-going systemic racism, artists and creatives with mission-driven practices are severely impacted.

Many of us have lost gigs and opportunities that were going to sustain us for the foreseeable time while dealing with perhaps stress, anxiety, and loss, etc..

Come join this interactive session for artists, culture bearers and tenders on how to rest, stay resilient, work, collaborate, and protect our practices during such turbulent times.

Letís strategize, share tangible best practices on adaptation, and learn resources on what to do next to maintain forward momentum for ourselves and as a community.
