Swimming a Long Way Together: Swimposium


Swimming a Long Way Together: Swimposium Date/Time
Date(s) - 21/08/2021
9:00 am - 8:00 pm

Across Dublin Bay




The Swimposium will take participants on a day-long journey across Dublin Bay, with swims, talks, sounds and music along the way.

20th century pioneer swimmer Mercedes Gleitze and her long distance, open water swimming feats provides a context for this event. The Swimposium will echo the swimmer’s embodied experience of duration, across time and distance, and investigate the connection with the physical and psychological space of the ocean.

Sandycove Beach is the starting point for the event, which begins with a morning swim. There will be morning and afternoon presentations and discussions with invited speakers that straddle the creative, health, academic and swimming worlds, opening up a discussion on swimming, its impact on the body and its role in communities.

Tickets are €20, which includes meals and refreshments across the course of the day.
