MORAY’S inaugural Feelgood Festival is preparing to end on a high.
The event – running as part of the Scottish Mental Health Arts and Film Festival – kicked off at the start of October and runs until Wednesday.
It has been designed to raise awareness of mental health and to challenge the stigma and discrimination sometimes associated with it.
One in four people will experience some kind of mental health issue in the course of a year.
"We set out to put on a festival which would bring the feelgood factor to Moray by promoting community and individual wellbeing," said co-ordinator Steven McCluskey.
A Feel Good on the Farm event is running under the festival banner at East Grange Loft, near Kinloss, this Sunday.
At the Gallery of Elgin Library, The ‘Walking in My Shoes’ creative arts exhibition, featuring works by local people with experience of mental ill health, continues until Wednesday, October 24.
Rounding off the festival on the same day is the premiere of ‘Bully’, the latest production from Moray Council’s Kutting Edge Youth Theatre.
‘Bully’, which contains strong language, can be seen at Lossiemouth High School on Wednesday, October 24 at 7pm. Admission is £2 on the door, and the production is recommended for audiences aged over 14.
The festival – a collaboration involving a host of community partners which received grant support from Moray Council – has a website at www.morayfeelgoodfestival.co.uk and a Facebook page.
