The Movember Foundation and Triple M are teaming up to bring men together to talk about a better way to being an Aussie bloke – with the help of regular Aussie men.
Inspired by the success of the Movember-funded ABC Series ‘Man Up’, One Night In Movember (in October) is a series of events for men and those who identify as men, where life’s important stuff will be tackled live on stage.
Each event is a chance for mates, brothers, fathers, partners, and sons from all walks of life, to look beyond the steel cap boots and stereotypes and uncover what being a man really means in 2017.
Join One Night In Movember (in October), and you’ll see these topics (and more) tackled in an open discussion.
Guided by masculinity expert Tom Harkin from Man Up, guest speakers and audience members will together have the chance to chat about real stuff in a relaxed, supportive environment.
From sharing personal stories, discussions around masculinity, and the strength and value in opening up around men's mental health and suicide – no topic is off the table.

Please Note: This is an event for men and those who identify as men. Movember Foundation’s experience in igniting conversations about men’s health has demonstrated that men often feel that they can open up in a different way when they are around other men. These events are being built with a male lens, to encourage men to open up and have ‘real’ conversations. The aim is to bring men together to find solutions and better understand how to look after themselves. Mo Sistas, we certainly haven’t forgotten the vital role you play in improving men’s health and supporting this work. Please join us and encourage the men in your lives to attend. We will be sharing content from the events and also producing a report summarising the themes discussed in the sessions to be shared via social media and Movember.com, to guide us all on how to best support the men in our lives and keep this conversation going.
