- Education for health workers, teachers, performers and students to improve health and well-being;
- Research across disciplines relevant to the health and wellbeing of performing artists;
- A culture of lifelong preventative healthcare and safety practices for performing artists and performing arts institutions;
- Multidisciplinary discourse among health professionals, educators and performing artists;
- Increased community awareness of performing arts healthcare issues.
