Dublin Swimposium

The Swimposium will take participants on a day-long journey across Dublin Bay, with swims, talks, sounds and music along the way. 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 physical and psychological space of the ocean. The invited speakers straddle the creative, health academic and swimming worlds, opening up a discussion on swimming, its impact on the body and its role in communities.
