Local Voices 037: First Fortnight Mental Health, Art & Culture Festival


#37: First Fortnight Mental Health, Art and Culture Festival was born out of the crash to help tackle the stigma and start a conversation around mental health.

In it’s 10th festival, First Fortnight was staged for the first time online in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Festival Programme Coordinator Edel Doran and co-founder JP Swaine join host Hayden Moore to talk all things First Fortnight, from it’s foundations in 2009 to current day.
