Mandem Don’t Cry
At our most recent event, the panel discussed masculinity and how it affects men’s mental health. Toxic masculinity is clearly a problem in today’s society but few are able to identify any solutions. The creation of MANDEM was an attempt at a solution and seeks to showcase positive male role models to the younger generations.
Among the panellists at this one were Bristol’s very own, Adom Philogene, who specialised in masculinity, fatherhood and kinship in Dominica during his PhD in social anthropology at St Andrews University, and Marcus Gilroy-Ware, a resident at Watershed’s Pervasive Media Studio and a writer on the effects of social media on mental health. His book, Filling the Void, is in stores now.
