A Community-Led Conversation On Caregiving And Caring Practices Within The Arts
This conversation welcomes all artists, arts workers, arts organizations and supporters interested in a dialogue about regional needs related to care and caregiving in the arts. Balancing Act provides support to artists and organizations working on care practices and policies, and these conversations help us better support the community. balancingactcanada.com
How is 'caregiving' defined for this event?
Balancing Act acknowledges many vectors of care and understands a caregiver may be someone caring for children, aging adults, those in need of personal or primary care, as well as someone who may be caring for the community. We acknowledge that care work can include blood, adopted, or chosen family, colleagues, and caring for others out of duty.
