Panel Discussion Myths And Realities Of Artists' Health

Co-presented by Artists’ Health Alliance and Akin Projects and our thanks to Glad Day Bookshop for hosting this event.

Be part of this groundbreaking conversation as a panel of multidisciplinary artists and an arts medicine practitioner dispel myths and tell truths about artists’ health.

This panel opens up a crucial discussion about artists’ health by identifying the ideas that stand in its way. The starving artist, the mad artist and the solitary genius are just a few of the deeply entrenched myths about artists which glorify states of illness – hunger, mental illness, isolation.

Join Mahlikah Awe:ri, Charlie C Petch and Dr. Chase McMurren as they unpack myths about artists’ health and address those myths with their lived experience and professional knowledge, followed by a group discussion and Q&A period. This panel challenges misconceptions, offers empowering narratives in their place and, ultimately, aims to break down barriers to artists’ health.
