In a nutshell
A group of Live Artists explore senses and well-being to create an environment for self-care, expression and reconnection.
A Live Art salon, using art as a lens to explore personal well-being. A safe space for self-expression, giving you the opportunity to pause, relax, be calm and reconnect.
The evening aims to provide a relief from everyday stresses, a welcoming platform for unvoiced thoughts and an encouragement for your own well-being in this moment and into the future.
What to Expect
The evening will consist of Live Art performances installed within the space for you to watch and interact with, each exploring a different aspect of self-care.
You can participate or observe the performances and are encouraged to use the resources provided to reflect on your own well-being. The evening is an opportunity to be cared for, but also to reflect on how we are or aren’t looking after ourselves and those around us.
