This year’s First Fortnight Festival is taking place from the 2nd to 12th of January. The ‘First Fortnight‘ 2013 line up includes Friz, Solus, Morgan DMC, Will Saint Leger and ADW. Since its inception in 2009, First Fortnight’s key aim has been to challenge mental health stigma and prejudice through the creative arts. A charity-based organisation, First Fortnight is run entirely by seven volunteers.
‘We believe the arts allow us to create a space where people can talk about mental health issues in a very non-scripted manner and help to change people’s perceptions about an issue that effects us all.
