Emotional burnout can happen in all professions. According to Forbes, every second person has experienced emotional burnout. However, research does not say what percentage of these people were able to overcome this problem independently.
Representatives of the creative industry are the most likely to be exposed to emotional burnout. I’M FINE! is the project that aims to raise this issue and reflect on how artists can maintain mental health and stay motivated and productive in a world that changes every minute.
I’M FINE! consists of two animation short films screenings:
In addition, the project offered a series of online lectures about emotional burnout, ways to deal with different emotional states, oppressive thoughts and experiences, to overcome the collective trauma of war. Art therapy workshops for people of varying age groups affected by the war were also organised.
The lectures were held online in partnership with the Projector video library open to the public. You can watch them at the link: https://bit.ly/3HrcLiV
I’M FINE! is a project by the LINOLEUM Contemporary Animation and Media Art Festival and Skwigly Animation Magazine. It is supported by the British Council and Ukrainian Institute under the UK/Ukraine Season of Culture.
