Who’s up for a big man gathering

Over the years we’ve often been asked if we have any plans to run a big man gathering to bring together men from all over the place to do a big man gathering kind of thing.

While the idea has always intrigued us it’s never been our primary focus as we’re more concerned with improving services for men and boys in general.

However, it’s a intriguing possibility  that won’t go away so we’ve decided to float the idea more widely. We’re not stuck on what a big man gathering thing should look like and sense that it is something that there’s a demand for. And as we are hosting the Second National Conference for Men and Boys for people working in the sector this November – we thought we’d explore whether we could follow that event up with a big man gathering just for men.

So if you’re into men’s work, self development, men’s circles, rites of passage – all that kind of stuff – and can see the potential of a big man gathering bringing together lots of men who are interested in this work – then our request right now is simply this – please get in touch – and if there are enough men who want to make this happen – then let’s make it happen.

Drop us an email in the first instance to office@themensnetwork.org.uk with the words “Man Gathering Thing” in the subject line.

Thanks Men!
