Meditations on Masculinities and Love
Presented in association with the exhibition 'From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing'
*Please note that registration for this event is now closed*
This two-part program provides the space for those who identify as men to explore topics surrounding masculinities in a conversation guided by artist and community leader Anthony Gebrehiwot. The program looks to bell hooks’ text The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love and Gebrehiwot’s exhibition From Boys to Men: The Road to Healing as starting points to talk about masculinities as they relate to family, childhood, mental health, sexuality, and love. Meditations on Masculinities and Love hopes to offer an opportunity for participants to express themselves, share their lived experiences, and create a sense of community.
Part 1: Wednesday, February 17, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
Part 2: Wednesday, March 3, 5:30 - 7:30 pm
This program will be limited to 10 participants, in order to create a sense of intimacy and a safe space for learning conversations to occur.
It is suggested that participants attend both the first session and the follow up reflection/conversation, if possible. This event will not be recorded.
Anthony Gebrehiwot is a passionate photographer and community leader, whose creative lens re-visions photography as an ongoing dialogue of social change between subject and society. Gebrehiwot seeks to communicate without language in an intimate and vulnerable way. Through photography, he portrays the vocabulary of race, masculinity, history, perception, and vulnerability.
