Resilience, a concept explored through the What Are You Hungry For? project, is now given greater attention through four online chats between CVIVArts Director Carrieanne Vivianette and Art practitioners who thrive in their chosen disciplines. 

What is resilience? Is the practice of this useful or hindering? How do we practice this and what are the alternatives? When might we need this? 

On May 20th at 7pm, we began cosy discussions on wellbeing in the arts sector, independent practice, the challenges and the freedoms, the advice and the unknowns, what's out there and what can be done. 

These were conducted on instagram live and can now be viewed below!
