The Royal Variety Charity, in collaboration with the British Association for Performing Arts Medicine (BAPAM) is hosting series of Webinar workshops for people working in all areas of the entertainment industry.
These sessions will focus on mental and personal wellbeing, which has become increasingly important and recognized over the past year. It has become apparent from online forums, first-hand accounts and through the Royal Variety Charity’s network, that many from the entertainment world feel that their mental health has suffered during the imposed period of lockdown, with theatres and entertainment venues closed due to the global pandemic.
The past year has affected so many from our world, whether they be performers, technicians, crew members, working on stage or behind the scenes. The initial three sessions will be themed to assist distinctive groups.
Session One 26th March
For those working in management and production, including agents, producers and directors.
Session Two 30th March
For those undertaking roles back of stage, technicians and TV/film crew members.
Session Three 8th April
For actors, dancers, musicians and other performers.
Giles Cooper, Chairman of the Royal Variety Charity said, ““For over one hundred years, the Royal Variety Charity has assisted those in need from the entertainment industry. Not only do we provide accommodation at Brinsworth House, our care home in Twickenham, but also run a successful national grants scheme. Now, for the first time, we can utilize Webinars. The need for these has become very apparent after hearing so many stories from those that have been unable to work during the past year because of the global pandemic. The Royal Variety Charity is pleased to be in partnership with the British Association for Performing Arts for these Webinars and hope that those taking part will benefit from each tailored session.”
