Mobile Masculinities project film viewing in April!

The Men’s Anti-Violence Council, in collaboration with the Career Leadership Academy (CLA) class at The University of Iowa, created a film project about masculinity. Mobile Masculinities was created by MAC member, Derrais Carter, in order to create discussions about masculinity among men on campus and in the community. In addition to creating interpersonal discussions, the video clips also serve as online resources.

You don’t need fancy recording equipment or studio space to have authentic discussions about masculinity. You can use a camera on almost any mobile device (e.g. cell phone camera, laptop webcam, tablet, etc.) and record men discussing masculinity.

The CLA students were incredible in supporting, advertising, recruiting, and editing material for the project. There will be a public viewing of the project on Tuesday, April 10 in Room A of the Iowa City Public Library starting at 6 p.m. There will be a panel discussion afterwards about masculinity in our community. The event is free and open to the public. Click on the image below for a larger version of the flyer.
