The Research to Practice (R2P) Talk Series investigates the mental and physical health of artists as well as performance science, the study of how to train and prepare for greater excellence and injury prevention. Talks draw on research to make practical applications in the lives of artists as well as those who train and treat them. Musculoskeletal issues, psychology and mental wellbeing, ergonomics, instructional theory, neuroscience and the pragmatics of sustaining an artist’s career are all on the table.
The Artists’ Health Alliance is committed to enhancing the wellbeing of professional performing and creative artists as well as students in, and teachers at, recognized post-secondary arts institutions. The Artists’ Health Alliance was formed with a vision of creating a centre for holistic treatment and comprehensive health education and outreach.
