Take a Breath
Noel Shaw Gallery, Baillieu Library, Parkville Campus, University of Melbourne
Take a Breath is an exhibition in the Noel Shaw Gallery of the Baillieu Library, a space to relax and find inspiration on long days of work and study.
Featuring eclectic items from the Archives and Special Collections, the exhibition includes rare and historic maps, music, books, art, and archival ephemera. These collections are part of the rich scholarly resources available to students and researchers at the University of Melbourne.
There are also spaces for visitors to #colourourcollections, read, rest, and de-stress with breathing exercises. Taking time for oneself to rest the eyes, stretch the legs, engage the creative brain, and breathe is an important practice for productive study and general wellbeing.
Relax, refresh, refocus: Take a Breath
