The Arts Wellbeing Collective's Work Well Guide is a resource that provides performing arts organisations/collaborators with practical strategies and evidence-based tools and techniques for creating mentally healthy workplaces.
Your workplace might be backstage, onstage, offstage, a tour bus, a shed or anything in between – but it’s still a workplace! All workplaces can benefit from taking meaningful actions to be physically, culturally, and psychologically safe.
Whether you’re working with one collaborator on a profit share in a black box space, or leading a major arts institution, creating a mentally healthy workplace is vital to the success of your work and to the health and wellbeing of the people around you.
