Handle with Care | Beyond the Obvious online talk #2

Where: Online. Zoom. 
When: April 5, 2023 08:29

We are excited and busy preparing the Culture Action Europe’s upcoming Beyond the Obvious 2023 Handle with Care | Culture for Social Well-being gathering in Elefsina, Greece. This year we will focus on politics, ethics and aesthetics of care, care for the planet and communities, care for each other. We will specifically discuss the evidence on the role of culture in improving health and well-being and will ask ourselves how can culture and participation in the cultural life of communities nourish the sense of social and individual well-being.

We will start getting our heads around the notions of care and well-being well before the Beyond the Obvious 2023 meeting in Elefsina! We are delighted to announce and invite you to join Culture Action Europe’s Beyond the Obvious online talks in April and May. These online talks will serve as stepping stones on a path towards the in-person conversations in June!

Handle with Care | Beyond the Obvious online talk “Different takes on care: take two” will take place on Tuesday, 16 May 13:00-14:00 (CEST).

We are thrilled to announce the speakers of this conversation – Jill K. Sonke (researcher and practitioner, arts in medicine), Darren Abrahams (ex-opera singer turned psychotherapist and coach) and Burak Sayin (founder and CEO of Space-time Works and board member of CAE).

“Different takes on care: take two” talk aims at focusing on how we as cultural workers can facilitate the creation of more caring societies, how arts and culture can heal and at the same time provoke critical and sometimes uncomfortable thinking?
