Beyond Equality is a change-making organisation!

Beyond Equality is a change-making organisation that works with men and boys to promote positive masculinities.

 

Men and boys are in a crisis with their mental health, their sense of identity and the violence they inflict on women, girls and each other.

Beyond Equality equips men with new perspectives, kickstarting a process of change for individuals and the community; and empowering us all to be better.

Beyond Equality is partnering with Movember to launch ‘Men’s Health Hubs’ across the UK. They will train a team of local facilitators to run a series of transformative workshops for groups of men aged 18-30 around subjects such as ‘collective resilience’, ‘mental wellbeing’ and ‘allyship’.

The aim of the project is to start new conversations among groups of men and overcome the stigma of asking for help, challenge harmful norms around masculinity and create a safer and more inclusive community.

They are looking for existing community groups of young men in Bristol aged 18-30 to deliver their fully-funded workshops to.

If you are connected to a group of men aged 18-30 that you feel would benefit from taking part in these workshops, please email bristol@beyondequality.org.

Jean Joseph is a London-based visual artist and cultural facilitator, born in Dominica. Her practice taps into influences that cross continents; Africa, the Americas, her place in Britain. Joseph’s paintings are often narrative-based and layered in combinations of mixed/plastic media, often accentuated with collage, metal, wood or text. This methodology enables experimentation and scaling – an unhindered approach to dimensions and materiality, creating constructions and embedding signifiers. She has a background in spatial design and a broad interest in the built and natural environment and subsequent human geography – specifically anthropogenic effects. Often, she navigates the middle ground between dimensions to interweave stories; the societal and historical. At times, these take on fully sculptural forms.Joseph first exhibited her layered works focusing on disappearing Caribbean architecture at Tricycle Gallery in 2002 in Recycle Redeem, a joint show. She has since exhibited widely – most significantly, ‘We’ve already paid – Journeys & Kinship’ launched in 2010 at arc Gallery North London, a gallery she was involved in establishing. This body of work is a narrative on the human transatlantic trade, envisioned in Elmina Fortress on the Ghanaian coast.Her practice has comprised writing, curating and working with various West African artists who are based in the UK or on the African continent. She has hosted events for creatives, mentored in the community, facilitated art-focused and learning workshops, and delivered community-centred projects with institutions, such as the Museum of London and London Borough of Brent Arts & Libraries and Archives. As a co-facilitator, she was one of a group of artists interacting with workers at McVities biscuit factory in Something Different, an immersive residency supported by Create London and local development partners.In 2019 Joseph co-founded EARTHworks [Artists] Collective, aiming to address the lack of intergenerational, wellbeing in creativity, and support for older artists/participants. As well as continuing her practice and exhibiting, she has worked on a range of art projects; mentoring within the arts, exhibition development, such as ‘Redefining Balance’, the work of Zimbabwean artist, Tafadzwa Gwetai, a show presented online in December 2020 to January 2021 with co-founder Gaynor Tutani. This project continues to gain further interest, and in its next iteration will form part of an academic/creative partnership.

Joseph wrote, curated and participated in ‘Fragments & Visibility’, a group show on the EARTHworks platform at University College London Hospital’s gallery space, appreciated by both medical staff and patients. The exhibition exemplified their ethos on wellbeing as a core objective of the Collective’s vision.

Joseph currently works out of her studio within the Second Floor Studios & Arts Community.
