categories: Special Event or Display

banner logo 440

The University of Houston Libraries and its partners are excited to host the first Artists’ Health and Wellness Colloquium and Resource Fair on Saturday, October 3rd, 2015.  This event will introduce resources and techniques that support the wellbeing of visual and performing artists through talks, demonstrations, and conversation.   The event is free and is open to the university community, as well as the general public.  It will provide an opportunity for students, community members, and wellness providers to create ongoing relationships for future support and enrichment.

The morning colloquium will offer a keynote speech from members of the Center for Performing Arts Medicine (CPAM) at Houston Methodist. Directly afterwards, there will be four separate breakout sessions on topics of Care of the professional voice, Physical conditioning for performance, Performance anxiety, and a Research Panel offering historical and trending perspectives on the intersection of art and health science. Aspiring and working artists will learn techniques for maintaining good health and ways to avoid over-stressing the body as they practice their art. The colloquium has a limit of 100 registered attendees and a light lunch will be provided.

The day will culminate with a two hour resource fair, so that attendees can learn about community and campus resources. Multiple community and health organizations will be represented with information on their services to artists, and  CPAM will have a table for attendees to sign-up for their Artist’s card. There is no limit to the attendees for the fair.
