Community, Creativity and Wellbeing

Presented by the HASH (Health, Arts, Social sciences and Humanities) Network and RMIT Social & Global Studies Centre, this panel event explores the role of community and creative, mindful and contemplative practices in cultivating mental and social wellbeing for individuals and communities.

The event is a conversation between Dr Tamara Borovica, RMIT’s researcher exploring the intersection between embodiment, creativity and mental health, Jess Huon, a writer, art therapist and Dharma teacher, Sarah Sutherland, an actress, drama therapist and theatre director, and Jake Potter, a psychotherapist and movement meditation teacher.

The panellists will discuss the role of their creative and contemplative work in cultivating community wellbeing. The discussion will also include ‘a taster’ of the creative, embodied and contemplative work the panellists bring to the communities they work with.

This event is open for everyone interested in creative and contemplative community practices.
