The Friday Late Spectacular: Macho? event is on at London’s Wellcome Collection on April 7.
Curated by One Tenth Human, the event will explore “the delicate art and complex science of masculinity” while dissecting what it means to be ‘manly’ and how we can even define it. The night will feature a range of performances, talks, roundtable discussions and more by drag kings, male choirs and other thinkers in the field dedicated to talking about manhood, from mental health to violence.
Some notable events include a talk by Ben Hurst of GREAT Men Initiative ‘Inside The Minds Of 13-Year-Old Boys’ and Liz Ostrowski’s ‘Working With Men Who Use Domestic Violence,’ a cabaret ‘BROMANCE,’ a conversation collage ‘The Empire Needs Men’ run by Raju Rage and Noa Carvajal and Lois Weaver will host ‘Fragile Masculinity: A Long Table’ among others.
