"How to get guys in care about gender violence?" Speaking Tour 2011 Each campus visit comes in two parts:
PART 1: THE MAN-TO-MAN DAY MEETING
Using the 2010 V-MEN PowerPoint Presentation, Derek will conduct a free, 60-minute guided discussion with men about the origins of male violence, along with several powerful exercises to help guys become authentically present to the role of gender violence has played in their own lives. Ideally, this would be conducted in the early afternoon on campus and would be a "men's only" event to encourage robust, open discussion.
PART 2: "GETTING GUYS TO CARE" PERFORMANCE
This evening event is part lecture, part theatrical performance that's about 75 minutes long. Built around three humorous monologues from the show, Derek will talk about his own personal journey and transformation from average guy who didn't care or think much about gender violence into a passionate activist. Using personal stories and fresh insights, he'll deliver real-world tips and tricks applicable to students, academics, counselors and activists alike. PART 2 is open to all genders and will also include an open discussion for attendees.
PARTS 1 & 2 are offered as a complete package for a single price, plus travel and lodging for two nights. If one of these parts are not desired or needed, one of them can be eliminated, but the cost generally remains the same.
