Some absolutely wonderful news to announce today!!!

Tasmen’s ‘Men with Heart’ exhibition has won the National Men’s Health Award in Tasmania for 2019!

Judged according to the key criteria that they provide the most impactful male-friendly service to enhance the lives of men and boys, by a national panel, the exhibition was shortlisted to a finals group of 4 programs, and also then put to a public vote.

We are very proud to receive this award from the Australian Mens Health Forum and to stand amongst such wonderful people and programs doing terrific work for men’s health and well-being in Tasmania.

A big thank you to all the men in particular who have offered so much of their time and heart bringing this exhibition to life and travelling it around Tasmania. Paddy Murray, Gordon Roberts, Anthony Burrows, Alan Raby, and of course Paul Hoelen

The exhibition is a great testament to this wonderful community of Men who have found the courage to share their deeper and more intimate world in order to spark hope and a positive shift in the way men are seen in their capacity to love, heal, be accountable and grow...

Well done everyone!!!

Healthy Masculinity circle happened, yesterday. Nine women and 9 men turned up to sit in circle and share. The topic Healthy Masculinity informed the discussion but it was really a deeply general sharing. Most wished to continue the sharing via more circles. We will keep you posted when and when and where that will happen and will invite you to participate. ... See MoreSee Less

This circle was a wonderful, rich and amazingly real sharing. I feel very fortunate to have experienced it.

This was truly one of the most awe inspiring and healing moments I have ever experienced. I am still processing and honestly forever grateful. ❤️❤️❤️

I too had the honour of participating in this circle. I'm still digesting it all really, but it really was an incredible experience. Thanks to all that attended and participated. I really hope that we can find a way to continue this conversation.

I had the privilege to be in this circle, and quite simply it was just in incredible experience... the depth, honesty, healing moments and insights from everyone’s sharing was just profound! Thank you so much for facilitating this and blessings for its continuance!!!

So significant that we are ready to do this thing.. let's talk.. 💓💓💓

Thanks Tasmen - you guys are doing awesome work!

Great outcome going forward ❤️🙏

Awesome!!!

What an experience! So very needed, healing and deeply appreciated. Please - Let's keep the conversation flowing 🙏

Healthy Masculinity? we asked Chuck a Tasmen guy what he thought it was. His reply below: -
As a bloke, I can do the active, busy, forceful, responsible and strong stuff. I am trying really hard to add more of the relaxed, emotionally intelligent, receptive, caring and available stuff.
Come along to our circle on Sat June 8. We would love to have more women come. You dont have to speak just to be there, to hold the space and listen would be great help. Its been mostly women who have been commenting and responding to our posts. Ring Paddy 0427837830 for any questions or to let us know that you will becoming.

Good morning everyone!

As you might well know, The Men With Heart Exhibition has been nominated for a Community Award in Tasmania, which is awesome news, and midnight today (June 2) is the last chance to vote for it!

To sum up the exhibition:

"In a time where much of the world’s media is choosing to focus on the darker side of what men are capable and the resultant fear and mistrust this can emulate - it’s super refreshing and important to balance this with positivity, inspiration and hopefulness for the great things men are capable of too..."

Here is a link to the voting page 🙂

www.amhf.org.au/men_s_health_awards_tas_voting_card_2019?fbclid=IwAR3NxpX-VfsjW1_vASge0uOIKG0zBOW...

So if you feel moved to support it this way, now is your chance!

Super duper appreciate everyone's positivity and good will towards this project, so good to get this message out there...!

Feel free to pass this on in your channels 🙂

Chris and I will be speaking at the Men With Heart exhibition at Queen Victoria Museum in Launceston next Sunday the 9th of June from 11am to 11.45 about how young people's rites of passage into adulthood fit into mother's and father's lives and mesh with our many variations of family life. We intend to have a fruitful discussion.

If you would like more information (or to book a similar information session for your community or organisation) see our website:

“Thank you for sharing your stories. It has been an honour to have spent the weekend with you as a group of strong and sensitive men. You all brought a wonderful mix of qualities to the weekend. As a mother I would feel very comfortable to have any of my boys come through your program. Thank you all again. In gratitude.”
