ABOUT THE TOUR
Bringing together influencers, students, researchers and practitioners, the Unmasked Campus Tour will take off in New York with other stops in the US, UK, and Mexico. From February to April, The Representation Project and Axe will visit colleges and universities, facilitating screenings, workshops and interactive expert panels.
The Representation Project is proud to partner with Axe to give boys and young men the confidence to strive to be their true selves. Our mutual goal is to raise awareness of limited male gender norms, create greater tolerance around broader definitions of masculinity, and engage young men to take action in expressing their individuality. Through screenings of The Mask You Live In, pro-social messaging, and the power of the Axe brand, boys and men can redefine what it means to “Be a Man”, express their true selves, and be liberated from the labels placed upon them.
In addition to visiting a select number of campuses, we’ll be engaging almost 50 campuses in a virtual bus tour, providing screening toolkits and ongoing resources for students to support young men in redefining what it means to “Be a Man”.
