Talk 01 - Working Well in Creative Industries with Tracy Margieson

Discussion of the importance of mental health and wellbeing has only intensified during COVID-19. But are we thinking about mental health and wellbeing all wrong? What does it mean in an ever-changing world? This discussion is particularly pertinent in the creative industries, where it can feel like our work lives and home lives blur, our passion for what we do can put us at risk of burnout, and where we’re always under pressure to do more with less. Join us to discuss how we might change not only the way we think about mental health and wellbeing – but what we do for our mental health and wellbeing.

Tracy Margieson has held a range of senior roles across arts management, strategy and project management, marketing and communications, and festivals and events management. Most recently, Tracy worked at Arts Centre Melbourne, where she was responsible for establishing and leading the Arts Wellbeing Collective, an award-winning, internationally renowned sector-wide program promoting positive mental health and wellbeing in the performing arts industry.

Tracy is currently a Higher Degree by Research Candidate in the Department of Management at Deakin Business School, undertaking a PhD exploring sensemaking in performing arts organisations. Tracy also holds post-graduate qualifications in both Business Psychology and Arts and Entertainment Management.

Amy and Karrie have committed to running a full marathon and fundraising $30,000 as we take part in Run From Poverty 2023.

Run From Poverty is an experience that exists for two primary reasons:

  • To raise funds to break the poverty cycle by empowering children to fulfil their potential.
  • To provide an immersive experience; empowering participants with a defined sense of purpose, leadership development, and a pathway to make our impact in the world.

The following video also provides a small snapshot of the experience we will be undertaking: Run From Poverty Experience

Ticket prices are a direct donation towards our $30,000 fundraising goal which we aim to surpass before we land in Kenya mid-July.
