First Fortnight was founded eight years ago by a group of volunteers who recognised a crucial need for more open dialogue around mental health in Ireland.

The annual festival has expanded significantly since 2010, however the intention and the passion behind challenging mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action has not waned. The festival continues to grow, with more than 100 events across 17 counties throughout Ireland this January.

Each year we have been struck by the diversity of artists from Ireland and across Europe creating work that challenges mental health stigma.

To that end, First Fortnight has partnered with a number of like-minded organisations across Europe and will host Europe’s Mental Health Arts Festival here in Ireland in January 2019!

Since 2012, First Fortnight also runs the First Fortnight Centre for Creative Therapies, which provides art- psychotherapy and music therapy for adults experiencing homelessness and mental ill-health.
