The Men’s Story Project (MSP) is a replicable, performance-based, community discussion project through which participants critically examine social ideas about masculinity. The MSP mission is to strengthen social norms that support healthy masculinities and gender equality, and to help eliminate gender-based violence, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, and other oppressions that are intertwined with masculinities, through ongoing events of men’s public story-sharing and collective dialogue. The Bears Breaking Boundaries funds are supporting: a) bringing a production of the MSP to UCB in April 2009, b) filming the production for educational use, and c) conducting a qualitative study with UCB students and MSP presenters regarding project content, process, and perceived short-term impacts, to inform development of a Masculinity Studies DeCal and UCB MSP initiative for the 2009-10 academic year.
