Is there a trick to staying on an even keel in this business, or is it inevitable you’ll be a little off kilter most of the time?
Gaylene Preston, Jackie van Beek, Madeleine Sami, Roseanne Liang, Tim van Dammen and Tom Sainsbury ponder the subject of wellness in consideration of the long hours and relentless stress endured to birth a project.
Join us and our friends at The Basement for Wellness Week and hear six mini-addresses about the struggle to stay strong and sane while still making projects that are exceptional.
The Basement, Thursday May 25, bar opens 5pm, talk 6-7pm, $5 koha appreciated
NB: Be seated by 5:55pm as we’re starting 6 sharp! Stay for pizza afterwards, on us!
Our speakers all come direct from the trenches having recently made documentary MY YEAR WITH HELEN, feature films THE BREAKER UPPERERS, THE INLAND ROAD and MEGA TIME SQUAD, short film DO NO HARM and web series FRIDAY NIGHT BITES and WAIHEKE REPUBLIQUE.
