Since the Fest’s beginning in 2018, the key focus has been on creating awareness of, and scheduling events that empower people to engage with the Five Ways to Wellbeing (Connect | Give| Take Notice | Keep Learning | Be Active). Due to the impact of Covid-19 on daily life it is important now more than ever that we support one another’s mental health and create awareness of the Five Ways to Wellbeing.
