Breathing Blue – Public engagement

Laurence Payot is working with patients and researchers in partnership with the Public Programmes Team, Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust, to explore the topic of breathing, breathlessness and research. This will result in the creation of a new body of work, Breathing Blue,which will be presented at The Forum, Wythenshave, on 21 June (Clean air day).

On 14 March, she invited artist and poet Scott Farlow to join her and engage with people living in Wythenshave to talk about air, the utopian garden city and the reality of today’s polluted air, to share stories of berthing well – and less well.

People were invited to share their thoughts on 2 A-boards, one representing the lungs, the other representing the air.

Video available soon.
