Following on from a successful launch of the Wellness Roadshow to coincide with mental health week in October last year, the team behind The Show Must Go On have now moved the 2020 events to take place virtually.
Through the support of Screenwest, Creative Victoria, Screen Queensland and Screen Australia online events have already taken place in Perth, Castlemaine/Ballarat and Queensland. A further event has just been announced to take place via Zoom for creatives residing in Melbourne, supported by the City of Melbourne and Film Victoria.
These wellbeing events include discussions of the key issues raised in the film, suggestions on industry actions, as well as providing tools and resources to support individuals. A great support for all those working within the arts and entertainment industry, particularly as we are seeing so many in a state of crisis at the moment with specific challenges relating to COVID-19.
In addition to the online offering for The Show Must Go On, the Film Art Media team has been busy creating educational content for producers and screen practitioners, facilitated by Sue Maslin and Charlotte Seymour. Webinars for creatives have so far been delivered through partnerships with Wide Angle in Tasmania, Screen Queensland and Screen Australia’s Indigenous Department.
Film Art Media is committed to increasing both skills development and wellbeing support nationwide at a time when so much producing, distribution and exhibition has been put on pause or cancelled due to the restrictions throughout Australia.
