This week's meeting material
  • The International Travel and Hosting Fellowship - This is an example of a Rotary Fellowship.
  • Do You See Me? - 2016 Film Program - For months film maker, Jane Schneider, has admired the work of Luke Atkinson on Instagram. His candid photos document the people he sees around the city – often solitary people, often elderly people. People you might walk straight past without even seeing. By connecting these images with interviews of children, this micro-doc challenges the way we see old people, particularly in public places, but also questions how we value old age itself.
  • Tackling The Boy Crisis - Michael Kimmel - In the world of gender studies, Michael Kimmel is what you might describe as an early adopter. He has spent much of the last forty years calling himself a feminist. But for a good deal of his career as an academic and writer, he has been thinking and exploring the behaviour of men, and believes that feminism can be men’s salvation. In this talk, he explains why we need to rethink the way we educate our boys to prevent them from falling through the cracks. 013.
