News: RESURGENCE Freelancer Wellbeing Workshops



​RESURGENCE is a Scottish and international creative inquiry into the public concern of inequality, to support the recovery and renewal of youth arts provision as it emerges from the confines of 2020. This intersectional collaboration is layered with artistic opportunity, learning and training, international collaboration and public platforms for the growth and transformation of the sector. 


As we recognise those who are self-employed/working freelance in the theatre and participatory arts sector are often unable to access training opportunities, we are offering you the opportunity to attend mental health workshops delivered by our partners
Pure Potential Scotland for FREE (subsidised by the RESURGENCE project). Each session will be
​delivered via Zoom and can accommodate up to 12 people. 


The first workshop on offer will be an exploration of mental health and emotional wellbeing, the impact of lockdown and the year of 2020, and understanding the importance of self care. The second of the two workshops will discuss how and when to have compassionate conversations, understand the issue and prevalence of suicide in Scotland, explore the signs that people may be thinking about suicide, and understand how and when to provide immediate help and support. 

REGISTRATION DEADLINE: 12 noon on Monday 31 May 2021 

​Sign up via Eventbrite by clicking the links to the sessions above. 

If you have any access needs, or require a specific service such as BSL interpretation or live captioning, then please contact Mahri Reilly (she/her) by this date to arrange. 

Please note; these workshops are intended for participatory arts/theatre-based freelancers based in Scotland only. Please do not sign-up if you are currently employed by an arts organisation. You also do not need to have attended the first workshop on Mental Health & Wellbeing to attend the second session.

More opportunities to get involved in RESURGENCE will be announced soon...
