Man Question is seeking proposals for performance pieces for our third New Masculinities Festival! This exciting event will take place in New York City on Saturday, May 9–exact time and place to be announced.
We are seeking performances of all kinds that passionately and curiously investigate the question, “how do you stay human in the face of masculinity?”
Successful performance proposals explore how expectations of masculinity impact people’s lives, both positively and negatively, in overt and in unexpected ways. Pieces in the festival also experiment with how to create less scripted, more intimate, and more fun lives and communities.
Check out our online submission form and begin your proposal now!
We seek pieces that have the potential to perturb the viewer to see the world in a new way. We ask applicants to have a clear vision for their piece and background in performance that they need to bring the piece to life. We also warmly invite you to contact us to discuss your ideas. Pieces in all genres of performance are accepted and encouraged!
Submit your proposal now and breathe new life into what it means to be a man!.

Once the almost exclusive domain of artists and the academy, the public discourse on creativity is now filled with the voices of community organizers, entrepreneurs, educators, therapists and others exploring what creativity is and how people develop as creative agents of social change. In this online creative conversation led by educator and community organizer Gwen Lowenheim and musician/composer David Belmont we will look at how the latest discoveries in creativity, play, music, visual arts, theatre and improvisation can inspire creative community and social change.
Additional Panelists to be Announced! RSVP here.

–News from ENDANGERED BODIES NY. In March, 2011, The WTCI convened an international summit – Endangered Species: Preserving The Female Body. Out of that, the Endangered Bodies Campaign was launched- partnering with like-minded body positive organizations (now in 8 different countries) who are engaged in the the same fight to free women’s/girls’ bodies from commodification and objectification.
–For the last 30 years, The WTCI has offered a Speakout, a time honored traditional forum for women to find their individual voice and share experiences, allowing the personal story of each woman to be heard, dignified, and transformed by our coming together.
