‘Hidden Hazards in the Arts’ workshop set for June 19 in Seattle
Upcoming workshop – Reducing Risks of Reproductive Harm to Artists
Date: June 19, 2014
Time: 7:00 pm
Location: Artspace Hiawatha Lofts, 843 Hiawatha Place S., Seattle 98144.
Under ordinary circumstances it’s challenging for couples to produce a healthy baby:
- 10 percent of women are infertile
- 10 percent of men are too
- 3 percent of newborns have birth defects
- Up to 40% of pregnancies are unsuccessful, depending on the mother’s age at conception
Then add in exposures to toxic art materials like resins, glues, solvents and metals that have been linked to problems: reduced fertility, miscarriages, birth defects, low birth weight, childhood cancer and developmental disorders.
Learn how to reduce reproductive risks from toxic chemicals.
Join other artists and designers at a free lecture and discussion on Reproductive Hazards in the Arts. Refreshments will be provided! RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org or 206-263-3069.
