Two Suitcases is a national film project run by Helium in which teenagers living with chronic illness collaborate on writing, filming and editing their own scripts with support from professional filmmakers and artists. This year, our third film week will take place at the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) in Dublin from 29 October to 2 November. The great thing about the project is that you can take part in person or online.

What’s Happening:

  • September – October: Join other teens online to write a collaborative film script on Helium’s creative web-space, OAK (
  • September – October: Skype master classes with professional filmmakers, writers and artists moderated by Helium.
  • 29 October – 2 November: Mid-term film week at IMMA in Dublin. Online activities will include set design, animation, and virtual acting.
  • November: Editing and soundtrack composition workshops … you can join us online here too.

Whatever your interest, there’s a role for you!
