“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength”- Criss Jami
Those who know me well know that I talk a lot but I find speaking from the heart, really talking honestly about my fears and problems, very difficult, as a lot of people will understand and share. I hide behind my jokes, my subtleties and my not so subtleties. My family, close in our own way, are often all speaking at once, each engaged in our own conversations and listening to no one else. I chose to listen from a very young age. I listened to friends, listened to strangers on the bus, listened to everyone.

We are delighted to announce that Joe Pantoliano (him of Sopranos, The Matrix, The Goonies, Memento and a whole heap of amazing movies) has been confirmed as a speaker at Make Some Noise for Mental Health as part of First Fortnight 2013.
And as if that wasn’t enough, we will be screening his documentary “No Kidding?!! Me Too!” in The Sugar Club on Jan 12th at 3pm and Joey will be hosting a post-show discussion afterwards.

Our good friend Tony Wright (aka.

He has spoken on our behalf, appeared in our promo videos, played numerous times on radio and in The Workman’s Club and in The Button Factory, and generally just been an inspirational person to have helping us along the way.

We owe a huge debt of gratitude to every single artist and performer who gave up their time and took part in First Fortnight 2012, and the fantastic Julie Feeney is no exception to that rule. Here’s a clip of Julie performing Impossibly Beautiful (composed by Julie Feeney and taken form “Pages”) at The Therapy Sessions in January 2012. We’d like to thank Julie again for playing, and for letting us use this wonderful footage captured by Mark O’Connor. We hope you enjoy it, and if you do, please share it. (more…)
