WeMeet - Circles of Care
Zwarte Vijversstraat 97
Exchange: how can embodied care practices help us towards better work ethics in the performing arts?
WeMeet is one of the formats in our actions to support mental health in the performing arts sector.
We organise a number of workshops with the focus on well-being. Our main focus is to give a forum to the sharing of good practices, methodologies, formats... developed by artists or other cultural workers, or to discuss specific relevant topics in the sector.

This session 'Circles of Care' is aimed at anyone with an interest in holistic work relations and establishing a culture of wellbeing at work – dancers and choreographers as well as other professionals in the performing arts field, managers, and confidants.
As a dance company Hiatus intent to blur the edges of what dance can become, we will discuss choreography as an expanded social practice, with the potential to foster body-mind connections and reinforce our communities. We will provide specific examples of active listening exercises, sensitivity training, and approaches to teamwork that encourage principles of co-intelligence, emergence, and mutual aid – as we seek to bring balance and vibrancy to our personal and professional lives.
Especially given our current period of immense cultural and ecological disruption, we gather in the spirit of care with this extended circle of performing arts colleagues to refresh our sense of purpose and celebrate the many potentials of embodied investigation.
We hope to give you the tools to invite some fresh sparks of possibility for yourself and your work environment.
