Unpacking Masculinities through Poetry
Critical Studies of Men and Masculinities includes understanding both men’s power and men’s vulnerabilities.
The University of the Philippines Center for Women’s and Gender Studies (UPCWGS), in partnership with the Feminist Media Lab (FEMMELAB) and the Art Ventures and Advocacy Network (ART VAN), and with the support of the Sexual Health and Empowerment (SHE) Project, which is funded by Oxfam and Global Affairs Canada, continues with the discussion series, “Conversations through Art (CTA): Tapping Various Creative Modalities for Intervention, Growth, and Transformation.” The ninth session of the series, Ang Tunay na Lalake ay Hindi (Raw) Tumutula?: Unpacking Masculinities through Poetry, will be held on 15 May 2021 (Saturday), 4:00-6:00 PM via Zoom. The session wishes to unpack men’s understanding of their own masculinity through the use of poetry as an art form. It also aims to expand our definition of “being a man” and “masculinities” through the lens of men of diverse sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and sex characteristics (SOGIESC).

CTA is an initiative by artists, advocacy builders, social workers, and those in the helping professions to collectively promote arts for social change. Envisioned as a series wherein various creative modalities are highlighted in each session, the invited resource speakers will be individuals from different parts of the world who are making contributions to the establishment of the expressive arts practice or use specific creative modalities for personal-professional, community, and sectoral development.
