Being A Man

24 Nov 2017 - 26 Nov 2017

Being A Man festival addresses the challenges and pressures of masculine identity in the 21st century.

For its fourth year, we ask what makes a man? The answers come via discussions about masculinity and power, Nordic masculinity, male identity and fatherhood, bullying, porn, teenage knife crime and music, to name just a few.

Some of the confirmed speakers include Robert Webb, the comedian, Peep Show-star and now memoirist; American race and women's rights activist Kevin Powell; the Booker Prize-winning author Alan Hollinghurst, famous for chronicling gay life in modern Britain; and the refugee-turned-moviestar Antonythasan Jesuthasan.

Follow our social media channels or sign up for emails to be notified when new speakers are announced.
