Artsworkers stop working & Zone Out
/ Craft and chill 

Arts workers need dedicated unproductive and creative rest time

Artists/artsworkers Amanda Lin and Emily Jung had a random inspiration, which is that we wanted to rest. Since then, we have held several zone-out events focused on theatre workers. We gather, we have some snacks, we have crafts. There's only one rule: no work talk is allowed!

Upcoming zone-out event: May 17, 2024 at the Paprika Festival


We want to invite you to craft & chill at our company/festival/show. What does that entail?

Craft & Chill events are usually 3-hours long, aiming for 15-25 participants who comes and goes during the sessions.

The cost breakdown is like so:

- $100 per facilitator (Amanda Lin and/or Emily Jung)

- ~$50 for materials and snacks 


Additionally, Tables (or a large table) and 10-15 chairs are usually what we need. Labour in the Arts comes around half an hour earlier to set up the space, and stay behind to tidy up afterwards. 

If you would like to inquire about inviting our zone-out/craft & chill event, please reach out to us at

We love the idea and want to start a chapter in our region. How can we collaborate?


That's so great (as long as your intentions are rooted in community, inclusivity, wholesome vibes, and rest)! We encourage you to have an online meeting with us so that we can share our experience with you, and how we can support you.

What is the difference between zone out and craft events?


We don't know we like both!!
