CONVERSATIONS WITH MEN is an exploration of masculinity, vulnerability and the tender connection between men and their childhood selves moderated by writer, broadcaster and feminist community builder CLEMENTINE FORD. CWM invites five men to speak to the boys they used to be about the men they learned to become. In this intimate space and through the generosity of these performers, CWM also invites audience members to reflect on how society informs and shapes masculinity in the minds of some of our littlest humans.
