Berklee Media Lab
150 Massachusetts Avenue
How can we make art for our whole lives, live wildly, and be fully inspired...but not sink into the unhealthy patterns we’ve seen from so many of our creative idols? (Think: the 27 Club.)
Berklee assistant professor, health counselor, and longtime touring artist Caroline Harvey shares her innovative work on sustainable creative practice. Learn to understand and avoid burnout, slumps, creative blocks, and the other imbalances that so often plague artists: post-gig exhaustion, emotional pressure, addiction, and stress-induced creative ruts. This lecture/workshop will include practical tips for daily living, how to stay healthy on the road, and how to live in a way that ensures you’ll be having fun, making art, and living well for your whole life.
