This workshop is for artists struggling with the impacts of burnout who want to understand and discuss the contexts and systems that encourage burnout culture.
How can artists challenge burnout culture? Focusing on self-care as an antidote to burnout puts the burden of navigating unjust contexts onto the shoulders of individuals, but the burnout problem is contextual and systemic. Resisting it can’t just be an individual effort. The facilitator of this workshop desires to support artists who want to explore their relationship to burnout and use their creativity to write another story.
About the Facilitator
As an active listener, Rose-Anne St-Paul wishes to hear and remember the many stories of the communities she is a part of — the stories of people who are alive and also those we are grieving. She has a practice as a guidance counselor and psychotherapist. She also consults with non-profit organisations as a facilitator. She draws inspiration from gardens, Afrodiasporic music and her elders’ stories.
