Series of Care: Burn Bright don’t Burn Out


Burn Bright don't Burn Out

Join us on Friday 5 May for Burn Bright don’t Burn Out with Creative Coach, Consultant and Educator, Auriel Majumdar

Establishing and maintaining a healthy work-life balance can be particularly challenging for artists and creative freelancers. Hustle culture is growing and so is our working day – and who knows the hustle more than freelancers? Burn Bright don’t Burn Out is an interactive workshop for artists who want to reset their boundaries with their clients, their employers, and most importantly themselves so that they can burn bright, without the burnout. 

There are 3 opportunities to join us for this workshop, we are hosting 1 online and 2 in person at Cartwright Hall. The content for all three will be the same, so book onto whichever is most convenient for you. Places are limited, so please only book onto one.

Our workshops are always free!
We can also provide bursaries and cover access costs to help reduce barriers to attending. See below for more info.

What will this workshop cover?

We’re in 2023, what the heck has happened over the past few years? It’s time to stop, look around, pause, and think about how to move forward – with balance taking the forefront in our artistic practice.

Burn Bright don’t Burn Out is a 2-hour workshop for artists where we will:

  • discuss as a group how we pump the brakes on burnout
  • implement healthy tools to create a healthy relationship between ourselves, work, and our art

This workshop will be led by Auriel Majumdar, who is a specialist in coaching artists and creatives in establishing a healthy work-life balance and avoiding burnout. 

Who is this workshop for?

Burn Bright don’t Burn Out is for creatives who are looking to develop a healthier work-life balance.

These workshops are open to all artists either living or making work in the Bradford District.

About the facilitator

Auriel Majumdar is a Creative Coach, Supervisor, Consultant and Educator.

I believe that creativity is the energy that powers our lives, and I love working in creative ways, with creative people. My practice is informed by theoretical ideas drawn from Gestalt and Existentialism and I passionately believe in supporting people to make meaningful choices for themselves. I believe in mistakes and mess and lives fully lived not perfectly lived. I believe in stories and poetry and mystery. As I work, I feel myself surrounded and uplifted by my communities of practice - of artists, audiences, coaches, coachees, both past and present. I feel privileged to be able to share my knowledge, experience, and opinion with people in many ways. I write and speak publicly about the topics that interest me and it is my great joy to be visible and have a voice in the world.

Bursaries, access and travel costs

As with all our development programmes, we have bursaries and access funds available to make these opportunities as accessible to as many people as possible. You will be asked about your financial support requirements upon offer of a place on the course.

Bursaries: a contribution towards your time to enable you to attend when you may otherwise be working. You can claim up to £50 for this half-day session.

Access costs: additional costs you may have to enable you to attend; things like disability support, BSL interpretation, translation, or childcare.

Travel costs: the cost of travel to our events ideally using public transport. If you need to take a taxi, please get in touch with us to let us know as we’ll need to approve this in advance.

We do not means-test or ask you to prove that you need this financial support, but where possible we need to agree in advance on what costs we will cover, and you will need to provide receipts to claim costs back from us. Please only apply for these if you need to, as this will ensure we can provide funds to those who really need them.
