The Arts Wellbeing Collective paired up with five Australian performing artists to create our Digital Shorts – bite sized videos on some of our most requested topics! These shorts are perfect for people curious to learn about promoting mental wellbeing in the performing arts; covering topics such as self care, supportive conversations, getting support and how to bring your learnings into the workplace.

Please take what resonates with you and pass these videos on to a friend or colleague who might be interested.
