This week Help Musicians UK is partnering with Remedy State, a wellness platform advocating self-care within the arts and entertainment industry. Christine Brown, Director of External Affairs at HMUK, will be delivering a keynote speech during the first ever retreat (May 20-23, 2018), sharing the vital work of HMUK and discussing the results of our Can Music Make You Sick? study, and the subsequent launch of Music Minds Matter, a dedicated 24/7 mental health service for the music industry.
Remedy State was founded out of a mutual love for electronic music and a desire to support the well-being of the community surrounding it, and is inspired by the practices of Integrated Medicine and Ayurveda.
The retreat features panels and workshops around topics ranging from nutrition to mindfulness. In addition to the keynote speech, Christine will moderate a panel entitled ‘Music and Wellness’, and will be joined by BBC Radio 1 DJ B. Traits, Sleep Science Coach Tom Middleton, Fat! Records and Certificate 18 founder Paul Arnold and Breath Coach and former DJ, Stuart Sandeman. The panellists will discuss their thoughts around the Can Music Make You Sick? study findings, and will discuss their own experiences, as well as how the industry can take steps to future-proof the dance music community.
