CIF Round 1 – Men’s Voices, Changing Relations CIC
“Men’s Voices ” involved a research and development phase with men and boys living in the Northern Heartlands area exploring what it means to be a man and a touring exhibition including sound, poetry and artwork arising from the R&D phase. The exhibition, “Stepping out of the Box”, was held in arts/heritage venues around south west Durham towns and villages with a community engagement programme led by local creative practitioners. Schools, men’s crees and community groups were invited to the exhibition to help inspire their own creative expression and exploration around their cultural heritage. The tour included 3 panel discussions and culminated in a showcase event.
