Be Extra News


by Josephine Walbank, 4 August 2020

To all of the fantastic individuals, communities, creatives, artists and performers in our wonderful arts sector, we are delighted to be able to welcome you all to BE EXTRA. 

We have seen – and experienced ourselves,  the toll that working in a creative industry can take on our wellbeing. BE EXTRA has been created to fulfil a need and provide a once-and-for-all solution to the absence of online support that is available for artists and creatives. 

“Whenever I have struggled with my wellbeing, or my friends in the creative industry have struggled with their mental health, I’ve always looked online for things that I could do to help. What could we do to change the situation? But there has never been the right support materials out there for creative people. I decided to change that.”

– BE EXTRA Founder, Katherine Rees

We are incredibly excited to start out and launch our jam-packed calendar of online courses (ideal to fill your days during the rest of the lockdown period) which are available for everyone. Keep an eye out on our website and social media pages to see what events, talks and workshops we’ve got coming up. 

So, welcome to the BE EXTRA family – we can’t wait to start forging the bonds and providing the support that our sector needs to blossom.
