Event description

Description

Centring around a diverse array of masculine experiences and perspectives, this discussion at The Round Table presented by Reworked, aims to contextualise the urgency of intersectional feminism. Addressing topics such as toxic masculinity, masculine privilege, and trans masculinity, this panel will highlight the virtues, flaws and nuance of masculinity, as well as, how identity might work cohesively with and within intersectional feminist practice to heal individuals and community.

An afternoon session of informal creative sharing will follow this event, during which, spoken word artists and poets will perform works and engage in discussions about their creative process and how feminist practices direct, influence, or are imbued in this process.

Meet at 1:00pm for an informal tour of the exhibition.
'Answering to Masculinity' at the Round Table will commence at 2:00pm, with an informal creative sharing session following from 3:45–4:30pm.

ABOUT REWORKED

Reworked is a collaboration between Alec Reade of New Wayfinders, Josie Alexandra and Sofia Skobeleva on a series of group discussions that aim at challenging hegemonic feminist discourse by giving voice to marginalised perspectives within their local community. Reworked events create an inclusive space for learning and sharing of theories and practices, for building a stronger intersectional artistic community within Naarm (Melbourne).

These events provide a platform to voices from IaWOC (Indigenous and Women of Colour), IaQTIPOC (queer/trans and/or intersex Indigenous and People of Colour), trans, gender diverse and first-generation immigrant and refugee communities who are frequently excluded from the feminist discourse, to share their voices, prose and ideas about the contemporary conditions and urgencies that inhabit their lives and work.
