It’s exciting to be working with other artists, researchers and facilitators on the Let’s Talk About Cough story exchange. It’s an online creative project, which will bring together people who’ve lived with cough, carers and researchers to share stories and knowledge in friendly, informal sessions.
For some people coughs can become long-term and researchers in Manchester are working to improve the diagnosis and treatment of the condition.
Alongside this research, this project aims to raise the profile of chronic cough and invite people with the condition to get involved.
The programme includes small group workshops (where you can try out storytelling, poetry, comedy, podcasting and visual art), informal drop-ins and weekly creative tasks.
If you, or anyone you care for, has had a cough for 2+ years, check our Vocal’s info page to find out more and apply.
