From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing
In the Instructional Centre Vitrines
Anthony Gebrehiwot's From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing challenges how masculinity can fit into today's society by focusing on the act of care. This series is a continuation of Gebrehiwot's From Boys To Men, presented in Scarborough's 2019 Nuit Blanche.
From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing features portraits of artists from RISE (Reaching Intelligent Souls Elsewhere), a Scarborough-based, youth-led, movement that provides opportunities and spaces for youth to develop artistically, professionally, and spiritually. This series looks at the means by which masculinity can manifest in healthy and inclusive ways. Road to Healing focuses on the release from toxic masculinity by reconsidering the biased ways of thinking and acting towards self-awareness as a strategy of collective recovery as activism.
