Mental Health Art and Culture Festival
January 2020

First Fortnight is a charity that challenges mental health prejudice through arts and cultural action. In January 2020, the National Gallery of Ireland will continue to support the charity by actively participating in the First Fortnight festival, providing a tailored education, learning and engagement programme focusing on mindfulness and mental health.

From discussions and debates to practical sessions and workshops, all ages and abilities will have the opportunity to connect with this topic.
