WEBINAR: Care Based Practice

By Creative Plus Business

What is Care Based Practice? And why is it important? In this timely webinar, artist and expert Charley Allanah from House of Sand discusses the fundamentals of Care Based Practice, and how 'Care Based’ differs from and intersect with ideas like Trauma Informed Practice, Cultural Safety, Diversity, Equity, Access & Inclusion (DEAI). Charley will also discuss the concept with Ben Steel, the founder and company director of Screen Well, a peak body dedicated to promoting and improving mental health outcomes for the Australian screen industry.

The pair will also work through whether or not Care Based Practice the right model for you, and share some practical techniques for a somewhat care based model for creatives, teams, clients and audiences.
