VIRTUAL IPRC: Toxic Productivity and the Creative Cycle

In this workshop hosted by Marina Martinez-Bateman, participants will deconstruct the toxic habit many of us have of associating our worth with our ability to produce. Especially in this charged and stressful time, we feel external pressure to make work that will help others contextualize a situation we ourselves may not yet have a handle on. Add to that a constant social media feed of friends and colleagues to unfairly compare ourselves to, and this is a recipe for despair. Workshop attendees will talk about where toxic productivity comes from, how to identify it, and introduce some and exercises that will help you develop other coping strategies.

Especially in this uncertain and stressful time, we feel external pressure to make work that will help others contextualize a situation we ourselves may not yet have a handle on. Add to that isolation combined with a constant social media feed of friends and colleagues to unfairly compare ourselves to, and this is a recipe for despair.
