[LONDON] OUT OF CONTROL #metoo #churchtoo #ustoo?
March 23, 2019 @ 9:30 am - 6:00 pm£50
A one-day conference for Christians about male violence with a focus on domestic abuse and wider themes of #metoo and #churchtoo. This event also celebrates the launch of “Out Of Control“, a new book by Gender Justice Specialist, Natalie Collins.
Natalie says: “We have so many brilliant contributors! The plan for the day is to have TED style talks, which distill speakers’ ideas into 15 or 20 minutes slots, with a panel for each set of speakers. There are also two additional panels; one on masculinities and one on supporting women. All sessions will take place in the same space as no one will want to miss listening to any of you!”
I’m likely to be drawing on my forthcoming chapter ‘Digital Culture’, in the book Pastoral Challenges and Concerns: A Christian Handbook for Leaders (Second edition of The Christian Handbook of Abuse, Addiction and Difficult Behaviour), edited by Brendan Geary and Jocelyn Bryan, published by Kevin Mayhew.
The nearest station to the venue is Shadwell (which is on the DLR).
