HPF: Toxic Masculinity (Thursday at Sidewalk) @ The Sidewalk Hanoi - Bar & Grill


1) Wednesday 7:30-10pm at Puku Café and Sports Bar

2) Thursday 9:30pm-midnight at Sidewalk Hanoi - Bar / Kitchen / Events

This week the Hanoi Philosophy Forum will host two thought-provoking evenings of discussions, talks, games, music and art delving into the complexities of toxic masculinity. Used to call out socially destructive male traits, this much-debated term is itself often considered regressive.

+ A series of lectures and small-group discussions led by Jon Dallas
+ Special music written and performed just for the Forum by On Ni
+ Artwork created for the Forum by Myrthe M Nijs, Olga Raski, Lara Ross-Mcglynn, Hà Lgr and Lara Hardie Stewart
+ Haiku and/or Drawing Contest led by Truitt Urbanic and Dakota Lambert
+ Toxic Masculinity Jenga
