- Educational Workshop
Lucy Draper-Clarke will be holding a workshop/talk around MINDFUL ACTIVISM.
DATE Saturday 1 July 2017
TIME 09H30 for 10H00 until 12H30
VENUE AFDA Film School, 41 Frost Avenue, Johannesburg
RSVP Corine Broomberg at firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 29 June 2017
Lucy will focus on what mindfulness is, issues within the acting industry (such as gender-based violence, emotional intensity of playing demanding characters that leads to stress and burn-out) and how actors can use the ideas from Mindful Activism to support themselves and make change within the industry itself.
Dr Lucy Draper-Clarke has brought together two fields that she is passionate about: Mindfulness and Activism. Now that she is moving into her wisdom years, it feels time to offer ideas to motivate others, based on the lucky breaks and the common mistakes that she has experienced along the way.
She runs courses on Mindfulness and Compassion, leads retreats away from the busy stresses of daily life, and speaks to audiences whenever possible, with the wish to encourage people to get engaged with issues of social and environmental justice, at whatever level they feel they can.
