The Mill, 154 Angas Street, Adelaide, Kaurna Yarta
Presented by the Arts Industry Council of South Australia

The Arts Industry Council of South Australia (AICSA) recently conducted research into workplace health and safety in the SA arts sector. The results of this survey highlighted the poor mental health of artists and arts workers and the extent that this is impacted by wages and job precarity in the sector.  This session is designed to delve into the results of our research, hear about services available and tailored specifically to the sector, and discuss actions towards addressing the poor mental health in the sector.

Speakers include:

  • AICSA General Manager, Kim Roberts, to talk to the results of AICSA’s WHS and Financial Wellbeing research
  • Ash King, Wellbeing Content and Programs Lead / Psychologist, Support Act
  • Tahnee Sutton, Senior Policy Officer, Office of the Mental Health Commissioner for South Australia, on behalf of the Mental Health Commissioner for South Australia Taimi Allan

Join us after for nibbles and networking.

The session will be recorded for those unable to attend in person.



The Arts Industry Council SA (AICSA) is a non-government not-for-profit acting as an independent voice for the arts in SA.  Run by a volunteer Executive Committee and part-time General Manager, AICSA acts on behalf of our members to advocate for a strong future for South Australian artists, arts workers and arts organisations.

As the state’s independent, sector-wide representative arts body, the Arts Industry Council of SA (AICSA) is extremely valuable to the South Australian arts sector. AICSA was constituted as an incorporated institution in 1991. The Council receives no operational funding from the government, and derives its support from the industry through member subscriptions, fundraising, sponsorship and in-kind donations.

Our members include over one hundred of the state’s arts and cultural organisations and independent artists. It is to our credit, the South Australian arts sector, that our collective commitment to maintaining our member subscriptions, allows this tradition to continue here today.


This project is supported by the Healthy Workplaces Strategy Grants Program, which is funded by Preventative Health SA and administered by South Australian Business Chamber.
