Tomorrow Man - "Breaking the Man Code"

Tomorrow Man workshops explore how we can better look after ourselves, our mates and our families.

"Breaking the Man Code" will look at the rules of being a man, who wrote them and the impact they have on men. It will create an opportunity to defy the rules of the male stereotype and exercise some emotional muscle.
