What Makes a Man? Attraction and Masculinity in 2016

This seriously tough question will be answered by some of Australia's most beloved thinkers

What do we really want in a man, as women, as men, and as a society? This huge issue will be tackled by five panellists: Peter FitzSimons, Joel Creasey, Tim Blackwell of Nova's Kate, Tim and Marty,  Kate Peck and I-Manifest founder, Jo Pretyman, chaired by The Chaser’s Chris Taylor live on stage at the Giant Dwarf theatre on April 18. 

In a world where the old rules don't exist any more – except when they do – and the new ones aren't established yet – except when they are – blokehood is more complex than it used to be. Some would even argue masculinity is "in crisis". Sure, the pathways may be tangled but through them there exists the potential for a better, brighter future. 

The panellists will discuss society's expectations of what makes a man attractive, and how they do and don't line up with the perspectives and desires of individuals. They'll also explore how we can better celebrate and cultivate originality. Afterward the talk, there'll be drinks with the panellists.  

If you've got a burning question for one, or all of the panellists, submit it in advance via Twitter, using the hashtag #FindYourMagic.

The full ticket price will be donated to I-Manifest, an organisation dedicated to empowering youth through creativity and individuality, helping students to better their futures through discovering their passion.

This event is presented by top male grooming brand LYNX, in partnership with I-Manifest and Time Out.
