WE WILL BE BACK IN 2021

Everyone Hurts inaugural event was a music festival held in January 2019 which raised $23k that was donated to Lifeline NZ and the Mental Health Foundation of NZ. The event received amazing local support and will become a biennial event for Everyone Hurts. More details on the festival will be announced closer to the next festival date.

"What you have created from a really painful experience is incredibly powerful - for your community, for our work and from a personal level, it means so much that people are so brave with these conversations, having lived through the experience of severe mental illness and distress, it means so much to see people legitimising these experiences and empowering their communities" - The mental Health Foundation NZ
