Wallace Foundation gathers resources to help arts workers avoid pandemic-induced burnout

Posted on: January 19, 2022

With many arts professionals facing increased stress due to the pandemic, the Wallace Foundation has assembled information and resources from multiple organizations, including the League of American Orchestras, that help support health and wellness for people working in the arts. Resources include surveys, reports, links to support groups, addresses by experts, and more from groups including the American Federation of Musicians, Opera America, the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees, the American Alliance of Museums, and the Actors’ Fund. The Wallace Foundation also reports on the League’s “Mental Health & Wellness” webinar, which aimed to normalize conversations about mental health and provide strategies, backed by scientific research, for League members and others. Wallace includes wellness information that the League has posted on its website, among them links to musician resources, a podcast series that focuses on self-care for artists, and a list of counseling groups.
