Announcing the Manhood 2005 Conference (open to women).

The Men’s Health and Wellbeing Association (Queensland) Inc. is delighted to announce the Manhood 2005 Conference, to be held on the 20th — 23rd October 2005 at the Novotel Twin Waters Resort, on the Sunshine Coast, Queensland.

This inaugural conference will bring together organisations and individuals who are involved in grassroots men’s work with government departments, agencies and private sector men’s and boy’s health providers.

The Manhood 2005 conference will provide an opportunity to see and hear keynote speakers and presenters showcasing current programs, initiatives, research and trends associated with the health and wellbeing of men and boys. The title ‘Redefining the Roles’ has been chosen so that the relevance and importance of what contemporary masculinity means can be reviewed, openly debated, highlighted and celebrated.

A number of notable speakers have already been secured including Steve Biddulph, Richard Fletcher, Jed Diamond, Alan Blackburn and Dr Arne Rubinstein.

The Conference will be followed by the biennial ANZ Men’s Gathering, which will be held at a camp on the sunshine coast. This will be followed by the:
