First Fortnight 2014
SpunOut.ie is partnering with First Fortnight to bring you some cool events this January.
The First Fortnight festival will be back in January 2014 for it's fifth year of promoting positive mental health in Ireland. And this year SpunOut.ie are joining forces to bring you two awesome events to challenge mental health stigma and engage people around Dublin.
On January 4th, keep an eye out for Snapshot Of Us. The SpunOut.ie workshop with young people (aged 16-18) will create temporary art installation pieces, a viral public photography expo and a crowd-sourced music video. But it's not strictly 16-18s as SpunOut.ie will be asking the public to take selfies and share them on social media with the hashtags #spunoutselfie and #firstfortnight. The music video will be screened at the finale event which you can find out more about below.
To get involved: get your selfies going from the 4th of January and tweet/Facebook @SpunOut and www.facebook.com/SpunOut.ie.
You can find out more about SpunOut.ie’s work at www.spunout.ie. If you are interested in supporting and getting involved in the workshop please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The First Fortnight finale gig, in association with SpunOut.ie, will see female duo, the Heathers, Come On Live Long, and Vann music rocking The Button Factory on Jan 11, 8.30pm. You can book your tickets now. For a full listing of events, check out FirstFortnight.ie.
