Boundaries are the needs and expectations that protect one’s integrity in their interactions with the outside world. Typically when we are left to our own devices to figure out the complex art of setting limits, we struggle. Artists, a group whose members face precarious employment, exploitation, and stiff competition, are especially vulnerable to pushback when it comes to establishing boundaries.

This workshop was created with artists in mind! In the first 60 minutes, participants will clarify what boundaries are and why they are needed, explore their existing and desired boundaries, and learn about different ways to communicate and uphold boundaries related to working in the arts. In the 15-minute Q & A, the facilitator will use participants’ examples to demystify the process of thinking about and expressing boundaries.
