Is masculinity toxic? Are you worried about the influence of Andrew Tate? Would you like help to challenge masculine stereotypes?
Arts education company, Changing Relations, have developed a brand new resource to support schools - and others who work with young people - to explore the stereotypes and expectations surrounding masculinity. What is “normal”? Is this a healthy or helpful set of expectations for boys and young men? What do the alternatives look like?
Using a mixture of visual art, co-created with Northeast boys and men, alongside poetry and real-life stories, Lads, lads, lads creates a safe, non-confrontational space to explore this tricky theme.
In a time in which Andrew Tate has been inducting boys as young as 12 into a toxic and misogynistic “cult” of masculinity, we want to support educators to gently challenge the boys you work with to navigate a healthier ladhood.
Education North Tyneside will host an after-school teacher CPD session in which you will have the opportunity to work with Changing Relations' new resource to:
Book your place and get a free copy of Lads, lads, lads to take away.
With many thanks to Education North Tyneside for providing refreshments and a venue for this event.
