Health & Safety for Visual Artists

Wednesday, October 15, 2008 - 10:30pm

Health & Safety for Visual Artists is a workshop designed to help visual and media artists develop safe
and healthy professional practices. Many visual artists repeatedly expose themselves to toxic and
potentially harmful chemicals and situations in order to produce their work and make a living. What are
the consequences? What can be done to create a healthier working environment?

Workshop participants will learn about:
• Toxicity in artists’ materials
• Health and safety in the studio
• Strategies for exposure reduction and risk management in art practices
