Bow Skills workshop: Nurturing Resilience – Exploring Boundaries and Creative Expression with Rose Eskafi

Tuesday 19th September 2023 , 6:00pm to 8:00pm

Join mindfulness practitioner Rose Eskafi in this workshop all around building resilience, setting healthy boundaries, and tapping into your own power of creative expression as an artist. 

For many artists and creatives navigating the sector today, precarity, uncertainty, and low self-esteem are common markers of experience that many share. In the face of all this, how can we better equip ourselves with the practical tools to build resilience and self-support systems that enable us to navigate these challenges with compassion, strength, and authenticity?  

In this artist-centred space, mindfulness practitioner Rose Eskafi will guide the group through a number of interactive exercises, guided meditations, and gentle discussions to encourage attendees to connect the dots between building self-esteem, confidence, resilience and setting firm boundaries.   

We will learn how to reframe and shift our focus to the collective experiences and humanity that we share as artists and creatives, so we can build solidarity and peer-to-peer support systems, and work towards a more caring arts ecology.
