Men’s violence against women is a severe and pervasive problem. In recent years, an increasingly popular way to address this challenge has been to directly engage men and boys in feminist-informed gender equality and violence prevention work. However, one particular critique of such efforts concerns the reliance upon overly didactic approaches and cognitive-centric pedagogies. This research examines the integration of arts into men’s gender transformative work in the US as an alternative. Drawing on interviews with fifteen practitioners and a year long case study of one program, findings reveal an array of potential benefits, challenges, and risks for the field to consider. This presentation will share the initial findings and analysis, including the project's use of poetic inquiry to both examine creative praxis and practice it.
