Affinity Groups

Arts + Caregiving + Now: How are we doing (this)?

Are you an artist/arts worker caring for children, older adults, or those needing full-time support?

Balancing Act offers monthly affinity groups for artists and arts workers engaged in care; a supportive space to dialogue and exchange resources. Welcoming new members always, Balancing Act’s Affinity Groups are a peer support, caregiver-friendly, ‘come when you can and as you can’ space. Featuring guest artists.
