Fear-Free Failure: How To Shape A Resilient PerformerArtists' Health Alliance, Toronto | ON

This event is part of our Research for Practice (R4P) Talk Series.

This talk is an invitation to reflect on how instructors react to mistakes or failure and how these attitudes are transmitted to students through body language and tone as well as through explicit reproach. Discover how we can teach performers to master their craft and become their best selves by embracing a growth mindset which sees failure as key to learning.

Key Takeaways
Why failure is good for artistic development and how to see it as the acquisition of a skill
Growth mindset vs fixed mindset
Why believing in yourself is crucial for resilience and, in the end, success"
