Last week at St Luke's we had a focus group to bring people together to discuss what Breathing Spaces means to different people, why it is important and how people can get involved in the new project.
"I couldn't relax all day, but taking part in that session thinking about Breathing Spaces really helped me to relax - I thoroughly enjoyed it!" Bernice
Here are some notes from our session:
When we asked what do people think of when they think of breathing Spaces people said:
Open air Cafes
When we asked how people felt about Breathing Spaces,
Affecting our mood
Brain opens up and become more aware
Sense of less pollution
When we asked people what they needed Breathing Space from,
To get out of the house
To go slower - a different pace.
For a change of atmosphere.
We also came up with lists of places that people would like to visit and different art forms that people would like to use to engage and explore different Breathing Spaces.
