Promoting arts as a way to cope with Mental Health Issues


The project is a brainchild of Gerald Cosgrove, who, pre-Covid, staged many fundraising events under the banner “The Language of Music”. Gerald’s intention is to inspire people who are struggling with mental health issues to play music while raising funds for local mental health charities.

The Poetry Cooperative – an online community of poets – in collaboration with musician Gerald Cosgrove and many others – is running a drive to promote the arts as a means of maintaining good mental health.

The next fundraising gig and poetry live mic will be staged at the Riverside Hotel, Sligo, on 13 July 2023 and will feature a host of local musicians and poets.

The Riverside Hotel has generously agreed to make their event room available free of charge, and we are excited to introduce a great mixture of musicians and poets.

Similar events were staged last year at the Roisin Dubh in Galway, the Imperial Hotel Dundalk, and the Maldron Hotel in Derry.
We would like to invite people to come along and support this event. And if any poets or musicians would like to perform, wmail [email protected].
