Union Chapel are running a year long project about contemporary masculinity and the first world war, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The project will include research around the impact of the first world war on the male psyche and how this may have affected future generations, and some of the issues that men face today. Our Project Development Worker, Jack Derbyshire, will be undertaking the research and collating it into an art installation / exhibition which will be displayed in Union Chapel in November 2017. He will also be part of the mens group. Although the project has a focus on war, the group itself will be focused on the male experience today. This group is not a therapeutic group. There will be an opportunity to contribute to the research for those who are interested, although it won't be in any way compulsory.
