WOW Workshops
Sunday 03 December 2017
14:00 to 17:00
The Tent

This workshop will explore what it means to be a man in today’s world, and how that impacts one’s emotional well-being.

Participants will be taken through a process to understand how cultural messages like ‘boys don’t cry’, ‘be tough', 'stay in control’ etc. can hurt one’s physical and emotional health, and how certain stereotypes prevent men from realising their humanity and full potential.

The intention is to create a safe space where vulnerability can be expressed. There will also be a focus on emotional intelligence and the skills required to lead emotionally enriched lives. 

Language: Sinhala and English

Age suitability: All ages
