Wellness is a concept that can easily elude busy artists. A thriving career sometimes means allocating energy, attention, and time to aspects of your creative practice at the expense of caring for your biggest asset—your personal well being. Join artist, educator, and wellness expert Abby Queal for a session of Working Artist Wednesday dedicated to practical ways to manage stress, find a balance between life and work, and incorporate mindfulness practices into your everyday routine.

WAW is a year-round series of professional development opportunities that focuses on learning practical skills, designed to help Omaha area artists cultivate or refresh the professional aspects of their creative practice. Each session is devoted to one topic led by professionals in the field and expert community partners.

Participants will create robust networks of peers and professional contacts alongside these opportunities to self-evaluate and learn from others’ experiences.

Every session/workshop is free and open to the public. OCI cannot offer childcare services, but parents you are more than welcome to bring your children if childcare is not available to you.

The WAW Series is sponsored in part by the Peter Kiewit Foundation.
