Swimmers Manifesto

Museum of Water

Fremantle Leisure Centre Pool, Sun 4 Mar,
9.00am – 11.30am

Why do we swim?
A public manifesto poolside at Fremantle Leisure Centre.

Some of us have a life-long relationship with swimming. This could be a life-changing experience of recovery, a return to fitness or the steady upkeep of a healthy mind and body during the course of busy lives. Perhaps adventure and endurance? Some people swim because they enjoy hitting the beach in summer or like the atmosphere around pools. Some people swim because they can, some people because they must.

Part speaker’s corner, part stream of consciousness and part awareness campaign, the Swimmers Manifesto attempts to put into words the profound experience that swimming and water offers each and every one of us. Immediately after the manifesto join us for a mass swim in the pool – bring your swimmers!

This event is free to watch or take part in and open to everyone.
