A match made in a very quirky heaven; creative mental health magazine HeadSpace are teaming up with the fantastic comedy improv troupe The Improrphans to bring you a launch party for HeadSpace Issue 3. The launch will take place at White Lady Art, Wellington Quay, at 7 pm on Friday 25 July, and will feature readings for the magazine and comedy improv acts.

Issue 3, which is supported by the Rehab Group Visual and Performing Arts Fund, features a selection of art, poems, fiction, and personal stories from contributors across the country with submissions received internationally. HeadSpace will be distributed to hospitals across the country, Jigsaw project centres and other youth centres. The HeadSpace team is committed to producing a magazine that accurately reflects every aspect of mental health, from maintaining positive mental health to illness and recovery, and the way that mental health and mental illness are perceived in society.

The Improrphans are a mixed group of new and veteran improvisers who share a love for the challenge that improv shows create and a drive to merge the familiar with the unexpected. The group were born out of a desire to bring something new to Dublin’s now thriving improv scene – some are old veterans, others are recent rookies. Together they bring a mixture of experience and freshness which they inject into each of their shows with the added dollop of audience participation.
