Free photographic exhibition to mark International Men’s Day
A free photographic exhibition celebrating International Men’s Day will be on the 1st floor of the Grosvenor Centre on Friday, 17 November
The pop up exhibition, produced by keen local photographer Matthew Toresen, is entitled “For me, being a man means…” and contains portraits of a number of local men, showing their perspectives on what they think makes a man. Local men who have had their portraits taken include Father Oliver Coss, Broadcaster John Griff, Northamptonshire Police Chief Constable Simon Edens and local brewer Alaric Neville.
Men’s health and wellbeing information stalls from organisations such as Northampton Leisure Trust, the Lowdown and Voluntary Impact Northamptonshire, will accompany the exhibition, which opens from noon to 3pm.
There will also be an opportunity to assist the Borough Council with their plans for next year’s celebrations, by sharing your views on what makes a man.
Cllr Anna King, Cabinet member for community engagement and safety, said: “We’re pleased to be working with partners to mark International Men’s Day with a fun and informative awareness-raising event.
“We encourage local men to come along and view the fantastic photos and find out more about the services that are available to them. We also look forward to hearing their contribution to our plans for next year’s celebrations.”
