Being a ManAfter launching the Women of the World (WOW) Festival back in 2011, Jude Kelly, the Southbank Centre's Artistic Director, now presents the new Being a Man (BAM) festival. Once realising that WOW had become a forum where men were often discussed, she thought it would be good for there to be an event where men could do the discussing. Bringing together men from different backgrounds and experiences, and of all ages, the three-day event will explore what it means to be a man today. The programme includes singer Billy Bragg and novelist Nick Hornby discussing the pros and cons of blokey-ness; Martin Daubney, the former editor of Loaded magazine, investigating porn and the brain; theatre director and writer Topher Campbell on being a gay black man; and artist Grayson Perry looks at why men need to sit down for their rights.
