Catch Your Breath is a new temporary exhibition exploring the Life of Breath research project, jointly led by Durham University and the University of Bristol. Bringing together medical history, philosophy, art, literature and music, the exhibition combines new artist commissions with objects from the Durham University collections and beyond to discover new ways of thinking about breath and breathlessness and their relationship to both illness and wellbeing.
Join the Exhibition Team and Life of Breath Project Members on this lunchtime tour around our winter exhibition Catch Your Breath. Find out how we brought together medical history, philosophy, art, literature and music. Discover how we have explored these areas by choosing collections from across the country and through new art commissions Tickets for this event are limited.

From Brexiting Britain to an Italy where nationalism is resurgent, the far right is mobilising a romantic politics of place and identity, which is hostile to the outsider. How can progressive thought fight back?' All welcome. Free transport available. Details and registration via https://centreforcatholicstudies.eventbrite.com
