Catch Your Breath Pop-Up Exhibition (Clayport Library, Durham)

Thu 10 October - Sat 12 October

Free

Breathing isn’t just a bodily function. It allows us to speak, laugh, and sing. It connects us to the outside world. It reflects our state of mind and can be consciously controlled. Breath has inspired art and literature. For many, it has a spiritual significance. The personal and cultural meaning of breath goes beyond the simple act of keeping us alive. 

Catch Your Breath explores the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, music, and literature, the exhibition discovers new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing.

 

On Saturday 12 October at 11am, poet Christy Ducker will hold a writing workshop inspired by the breath. Visit our event page for more details.

 

This event is part of Durham County Council’s Durham Book Festival (5 – 13 October) programme, produced by New Writing North, which takes place in Durham city annually in October. Events are held all over Durham City and County Durham.
