I gave a talk about promoting healthy masculinities to students from Griffith University Film School in Brisbane. They created the 2 great videos below. Both approach the healthy masculinity topic from different perspectives.
While living in the USA, I was influenced by the gender violence prevention work of Jackson Katz and took some of his courses
The videos below serve as a reminder that while working to create healthy masculinities we must not destroy many of the attributes that we love about men and boys.
Most primal societies had various forms of ‘Rites of Passage’ where boys were initiated into manhood. The Rite Journey has delivered many such programs to schools across Australia.
