In 2018 over 8,000 people attended First Fortnight festival events nationwide.
Actor Emmet Kirwan, screenwriter and playwright Stefanie Preissner, musicians The Academic, Saint Sister and former athlete David Gillick will join artists from across Europe in challenging mental health stigma throughout Ireland this January.
