Join poet and Catch Your Breath writer-in-residence Christy Ducker for a writing workshop inspired by the exhibition. Christy will guide you through writing in response to art, artefacts and ideas from around the world evoked by the exhibition, thinking about breath and respiratory health in new ways. Expect to play with breath in the poetic line, and let the air into your writing! Suitable for all abilities.

Christy Ducker is a poet and teacher of creative writing. Her first full-length collection Skipper was published in 2015, and includes work commended by the Forward Prize judges. Her pamphlet Armour (2011) was a PBS Pamphlet Choice. Two further pamphlets – Heroes (2016) and Messenger(2017) – have since followed. Her commissions include residencies with Port of Tyne, English Heritage, Edinburgh Surgeons’ Hall Museum, and York University’s Centre for Immunology and Infection; she also devised and directed North East Heroes, an archives and education project funded by Arts Council England. Christy has recently been working as a research fellow on poetry and health at Newcastle University’s Institute for Creative Arts Practice.

This workshop will take place in the Catch Your Breath exhibition gallery. Due to limited ticket numbers, please ensure that you book in advance to avoid disappointment. If you have any queries, please visit the Palace Green website or contact us at pg.custodian@durham.ac.uk.
