The stoic father. The obedient son. The financial provider. The metrosexual. The transgender man.
The concept of masculinity and its associated attributes, behaviour and roles is experiencing a fundamental change. Technology has transformed the nature of traditional work from blue collar to knowledge based; two incomes are essential to afford a family home; and women have “leaned in” en masse in the classroom, in the board room and on the political scene.
Spur explores how these changes affect individual boys and men, and the societal implications.
Bardia Sinaee will provide a short performance prior to this event. Mr Sinaee’s performance is made possible thanks to the support of Access Copyright Foundation and the RBC Emerging Artists program.
Dalton Higgins will be participating as a designated respondent.
