We’ve extended our engagement survey to Sunday 8 May. We’d love to hear from you!
When the Arts Wellbeing Collective began just over 5 years ago, the unique pressures of our industry and the toll they can take on our people’s mental health and wellbeing were deeply felt across the sector. While some places excelled in supporting their people and creating mentally healthy environments, many organisations struggled to identify or implement practical, everyday actions for supporting mental health in our workplaces. In general, we knew why mental health mattered at work, but were unsure how to address this most effectively.
Across the life of the Collective, we’ve been heartened to see literacy and awareness of mental health significantly improve, as well as a greater understanding emerging about the impacts of stigma and discrimination; the importance of help-seeking; and a growing willingness to trial practical preventative actions.
After 2 years of a global pandemic, no one needs to be convinced that mental health matters. We have a long way to go though, to make our live performance workplaces truly work for everyone. Working together, we can create the industry we want to work in that enables our practice and our people to thrive.
So, what’s working? What’s missing? What comes next? We want to hear from you! We are currently undertaking strategic planning and engagement to help shape the Collective’s goals and priorities for the next three years and are running a survey to help us better understand your experiences of the Collective so far, as well as your ideas for what needs to happen now.
We’ve extended the survey to Sunday 8 May 2022 to make sure that we hear from as many people as possible. And we have 5 x $100 Arts Centre Melbourne gift vouchers up for grabs for completing it!
Take the survey now to enter the draw!
Gift Vouchers are valid for 3 years from the date of issue, and can be redeemed on any Arts Centre Melbourne ticketed event (excluding those at the Sydney Myer Music Bowl).
Wishing you good health, warmth, and creativity,
The team at Arts Centre Melbourne
