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.

Originals, the exhibition shows the work of two Irish artists, Morgan & Eimear-Jean McCormack and is produced and curated by Natalie Winterlich & Shane O’ Donoghue. The art exhibition will take place at The Twisted Pepper, 54 Middle Abbey St., Dublin 2 from the 30th January (opening party at 9pm) to the 28th February. Originals is a chance to see some super graphic art to kill off those January blues!
Morgan is one of Irelands most innovative artists, based in Dublin. His distinctive form of art is inspired by his everyday environment and the people he meets along the way, as well as being influenced by the escapism of film, his work is primarily in acrylic on canvas, although he also creates digital prints mixing traditional photography techniques with illustrations as well as mixed media works combining digital prints on canvas. Morgan has recently had a selection of his work touring the US. Expect a clean graffiti influenced style with stories running through the pieces.
Eimear-Jean McCormack is from Cork and is a printmaker. She manages to create urban and atmospheric scenes using lines and colour very sparingly, the end result being quite simple throughout. She holds an MA in Fine Art Printmaking from The University of The Arts, London. She has exhibited widely in Ireland as well as New York, London, France and China.
