Show me your Breath –
How to share your breath with us

Focused on the universal act of breathing, Breathe with Me is a global engagement art project that spreads a simple but ambitious message of interconnectivity, awareness, unity and positive action, by inviting everyone to breathe together. Breathe ignites action for a strong and sustainable future. It inspires engagement that is impactful in a multitude of ways to see how the world can breathe together for a better future.

That’s why we launch this global request to find out how everyone ‘breathes’ in a way that is similar to Jeppe Hein’s Breathing Watercolours. It is an open invitation to everyone to take Breathe with Me into their own lives, practicing it in their own unique way, to feel that they can relate to others, and the messages within.

We hope the Breathe with Me manual can empower individuals, families, neighbours, communities, schools, museums as well as other public institutions and organizations, to make the invisible visible, and share how we breathe around the world. It offers different ways to create Breathe with Me projects, but is intended as an inspirational kit open to interpretation and variation. To add to this, we have included some learning activities about breathing that can be used for Breathe with Me workshops.

Participants are encouraged to upload or post contributions, photos and film documentation as well as any ideas for Breathe with Me projects and workshops on Instagram using the hashtag #breathewithme. An overview will be compiled by us on www.instagram.com/breathewithmeandtheworld.

You can download the complete manuals here in English (PDF, 37 pages, 3,5MB) and German (PDF, 37 pages, 3,5MB).

Come and breathe with us and share your breath with the world, for the world!
