WHO WE ARE
What happens when you change the space? What happens when you create a different environment in which to tackle a difficult issue?
Since its inception in 2009, First Fortnight’s key aim has been to challenge mental health sti gma and prejudice through the
creati ve arts. 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.
We are an arts-based mental health organisation, a festival and, from December 2012, a mental health service provider with the exciting launch of the First Fortnight Centre for Creative Therapies.
A charity-based organisation, First Fortnight is run entirely by seven volunteers.
