Men's Voices

Men's Voices: Stepping Out of the Box Exhibition. An original artistic exploration of masculinity, asking how gender stereotypes have shaped men and boys in the North East.  

Dates: Sat 9 February - Sat 23 February 2019
Time: 10am to 4pm
Price: FREE ADMISSION

An original artistic exhibition exploring traditional masculinity; featuring textiles, poetry and sound recordings that consider how destructive social norms and stereotypes shape us and our mental health. 

Discover how local artists broke down barriers with men and boys across the North East to explore aspects of masculinity that have been entrenched in this part of the world - with its history of industrial jobs that reinforced gender norms and shaped traditional roles of men and women. 

How do gender norms impact mental health? 

Panel Talk. Sat 16 Feb  - 1.30-2.30pm. £5. £4 Concessions. Book here

Join us for this thought-provoking discussion on how mental health is affected by gender norms. Speakers Professor Brendan Gough – who specialises in masculinity and its impact on men’s health and lifestyle - Caroline Dower a psychotherapist for the past 20 years and now Head of the Counselling Service at Durham University and Chris Hemmings, a journalist, author and public speaker who questions how destructive social norms can affect society, promise to bring interesting angles to the debate.
