Cock and Bull



The Male Journey: Innocence, Urgency, Acceptance

with William Bloom and Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz

Saturday 8 July 10:00 – 4:00  – London
Larches House, 1 Rectory Lane, Edgware HA8 7LF
Five minutes from Edgware Station on the Northern Line

We are creating a safe space for a gathering of men of all ages and orientations. We warmly invite you to join us, to listen, inspire and  explore. The day will be full of opportunities to play, be serious, share and encounter.

The theme will be our gender’s tendency towards exaggeration in our stories and descriptions. This may be seen as unhelpful (especially by women), but in these exaggerations there is also value, entertainment and hope. These dreams, fantasies and embellishments point towards new possibilities. The storyteller, stands confident and centre stage. The stories are not all ‘cock and bull’.

This day together will give us a chance to explore being a man, respecting our diversity and masculinity — aware too of insecurity and the importance of supporting each other in our confusion. We wish to honour men, lads and boys, the importance of these present times and the vital roles we all need to play.

The theme for the day is the telling of stories. What is your present story? Who are you? How do other people see you? How can we bridge the gap between the two?How can you tell your story and create legacy? Also we are being sold a very apocalyptic story for the future of mankind and the planet. We urgently need to counter this with wild, beautiful, enchanting stories of the future.

The workshop will be led by Nick Clements, and he will be assisted by William Bloom  and Kenny Mammarella-D’Cruz.
