Event details

Stress and worries hit us every day in many different forms. The current impact of COVID19 on all of us is no difference. Individually we all seek in our own way to improve our wellbeing in different ways and cope. One of these ways has been described as watching the sky above and feeling part of something bigger or just able to have time to contemplate.

This month's event will focus upon how experiencing the sky might help us, what the reasons could be and if there is a wider opportunity. To fully capture the many facets of experiences, approaches and views we have created a unique panel hosted by Dr D Brown (NTU) that will discuss this topic. On the panel we have invited local artist, photographer and sky enthusiast P Woolley, an expert on mental support and wellbeing from NTU student support services D Hendry (NTU), and journalist, blogger and content creator J Paterson.

Given the current COVID-19 situation, this event is not taking place as a public NTU event. However, our panel will provide their discussion as an online recording to everyone who is booked onto this event. We will email a link to the material on YouTube to everyone who has booked. We will be happy to answer questions posted during the talk.
