An evening of talks and creative workshops debating our understanding of masculinity and its connection to the army will be hosted by the National Army Museum on 13 September 2017.
Masculinity Late follows a Feminism Late held by the museum in June and continues the new museums commitment to offering a space to debate issues and ideas affecting today's society.
The Chelsea-based museum will open its doors to the public between 6.30pm – 9.30pm and offer a variety of workshops and talks as well as a chance to explore the themes of masculinity throughout the museum's collection and permanent thematic galleries – Soldier, Army, Battle, Society and Insight.
Dr Jessica Meyer, Associate Professor of Modern British History at The University of Leeds will run an interactive workshop on the experiences of men in the First World War. Visitors will have the chance to create their own 'Dissapointman' cartoon in a workshop led by interdisciplinary artist and writer Chris Sav.
Throughout the night The CALM Zone, run by charity The Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), will discuss masculinity, mental health and what it means to be a man today. The event will close with a lively panel discussion - Does the army make men?
