Thursday 19 September at BMW Christchurch

6:00PM-8:00PM

Hard-ly Speaking is about creating a space where men can share their stories. Since 2018 we’ve had the pleasure of hearing from a diverse range of males, all equally committed to building a connected community. Their stories are very different, but they stand together for change.
