The Sligo Champion - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The start of 2019 seen a unique edi­tion of the First Fort­night fes­ti­val as it se­cured the right to host Europe’s Men­tal Health fes­ti­val here in Ire­land.

Their pre­sen­ta­tion of this fes­ti­val show­cases the vi­brancy and di­ver­sity of mod­ern Ire­land through­out the nu­mer­ous events, with an em­pha­sis on the Eu­ro­pean com­mu­nity. As such, EDIC Sligo, based in Sligo Cen­tral Li­brary, be­came in­volved with this na­tion­wide event and ran three sto­ry­telling work­shops in Ballymote, Tub- bercurry and Cen­tral Li­braries. The fa­cil­i­ta­tor was ‘Stressed Out Steve’ who ex­plored the con­cepts of mood and emo­tion through sto­ry­telling and crafts.

All par­tic­i­pants, and their par­ents, re­ally en­joyed the work­shops which ran over two con­sec­u­tive days. If you have missed out on th­ese events there are many more on through­out the first two weeks of Jan­uary in var­i­ous lo­ca­tions.
