The Men’s Network is bringing together volunteers, people with learning disabilities and support services for men and boys to create a public exhibition to mark International Men’s Day in Brighton & Hove on Saturday 19th November 2011.
The project is being led by Dandelion Stories, a local community project that enables people to share their personal stories anonymously online and then works with local people with learning disabilities to turn the stories into public exhibitions.
Jacqui Clark, of Dandelion Stories, is developing this project as a participant on The Men’s Network’s Community Leaders’ Program, an initiative that trains volunteers to develop and lead community projects.
One of the project’s aims is to collect dozens of stories of men’s different life experiences and use these stories to promote some of the different services and projects that work with men and boys in Brighton & Hove.
Further details of the public exhibition will be published in the run up to International Men’s Day 2011.
Other activities planned for International Men’s Day in Brighton & Hove include Tash Dash 2011 – a sponsored 5km run along Brighton seafront which is open to all men and women as long as they grow, draw or stick on moustache to run the race.
