I invite, women and men to come and sit with us in Circle. It is where we can sit in a safe place and just be who we really are. We can talk about how we feel and experience our world, being listened to with respect and not judged. We are offering this experience as part of Tasmen's Men With Heart Exhibition, in Launceston at the Community Gallery, Queen Victoria Museum, Inveresk.
Our first circle is on Saturday, June 8 at 1pm. Out special topic is ‘Healthy Masculinity’. We have no agenda. We would love to hear what you feel and think. It’s a conversation that’s not happening, so let's do it. We are living in chaotic times with lots of aspects around gender roles changing. Mothers with boys who have been to our Men With Heart exhibition have spoken to us about this. We are also interested in young peoples views, anyone over 16 is welcome to attend.
Paddy an experienced facilitator will be moderating the group. Your words about your experience and feelings on Healthy Masculinity are important to us. We will listen with respect and not judge.
For information, ring phone or email below
Pleases register to attend, no charge: Either by phone: 0423353752
Or email: tasmenmhwb@gmail.com

MEN AT WORK, setting up MEN WITH HEART
Setting up our Men With Heart Exhibition, ready for you. Come to the opening this Saturday, May 11 at 1pm, Queen Victoria community Gallery Invermay Rd, Inveresk.
We want to thank the staff of the Queen Victoria Museum for allowing this to happen and the Mayor of Launceston, Albert Van Zetten. It was the Tasmania Community Fund who granted us the money to put the exhibition together. Including our Tasmen volunteers a lot of Tasmanians wanting this to happen for you. It is award-winning Photographer Paul Hoelen and his dedication over 17 years, that is the foundation of the show. Come and look us up at the opening, we would love to talk with you.

Merridy Pugh you should go with dad, Mark & Ebby. I’d have loved to.

I am Stig, president of Tasmen, inviting you to come along to our Men With Heart exhibition Sat. May 11 at 1pm.
The venue is Queen Victoria Art Gallery, 2 Invermay Rd, Inveresk.
I will be there together with other Men and we would love to meet you, speak with you, show you around and answer your questions.
Why come? I would love to share with you our celebration of Men.
Men being open emotionally, not being afraid to be who they really are and being supportive of each other in this journey.
And of course, being always encouraged to be 'a better me'.
It is what many women say that they want from and for their men, well here it is.
Our showings in Hobart and Burnie were deeply moving experiences for many of our guests.
It was not uncommon for men and women to cry as they were touched by emotions so significant and relevant in their own life's.
The exhibition is a celebration of the work we do. Providing a safe supportive environment for men to share their fears and anxieties.
I personally experienced this two years ago at my first Tasmen gathering. It was big for me and I feel can help many men.
That is why I have stepped up to be president of Tasmen.
See you there?

An amazing experiment in Denmark that shows how many hidden connections there can be in a community. Can we work toward opening these connections?

This social experiment proves we have more in common than we think. (H/T TV 2)

Baking good blokes. Healthy Masculinity - the conversation that needs to happen. Women have asked us to speak out to stand up on this. Many women were deeply moved by our Men With Heart Exhibition in Hobart and Burnie, especially mothers of sons. We are responding by having a public panel discussion on Health Masculinity as part of our Men With Heart exhibition, which opens in Launceston on Sat May 11 (details see website www.tasmen.org.au) The panel discussion on Healthy Masculinity is on Sat June 8 at 1pm.
We realise that this may not be a safe topic for some. Our work in groups is to create a safe container for discussions: we focus on # listening not interrupting # not judging # not giving advice # not blaming # being respectful, not abusive # valuing civil conversation # confidentiality.
Paddy the baker in the image, will be facilitating and moderating these discussions. He is a trained counsellor and facilitator. He says “ There are lots of good men out there, we need to acknowledge that. Men also need to stand up and speak out against behaviour that harms others especially women, who do not feel safe in public. We need to help change that”
Come and tell us what you think, before the exhibition on May 2 and 9, 6.30 pm in Launceston. Ring Paddy on 0427837830 if you are interested.
We need your help with this. Are any of prepared to speak at our public discussion on, Sat June 8. If you live around Launceston come and speak to us, or ring and talk to us.
