Hurray for the amazing University of Oregon Men’s Center, which will be creating an MSP production in Fall 2014! Dr. Lehrer gave an evening talk and daylong MSP training at U. of Oregon. Here’s some feedback:

“I live in a fraternity house of 36, 18-22 year-old men. I wish each of us shared with each other like those in the Men’s Story Project.” –U. of O. student
“More people need to be exposed to this; it has great value to all people and breaking the paradigms people hold onto that put others or themselves in pain. Thank you for doing all this!” –U. of O. student

In the wake of our first performance, I find myself challenging myself to be a more consistent person. This may very well be related to interacting with the stories of the other men, as well as connecting more deeply, through my piece in the show, with some of my own struggles. More than just masculinity, I felt like we looked at humanity, and I knew after the show I would now have some momentum to more deeply interact with the world.”

– MSP Presenter

To gather with a group of diverse men to publicly explore masculinity and vulnerably share our stories that generally don’t fit into the bandwidth of accepted male expression was nerve-wracking, exhilarating, liberating and hopeful…It was liberating to speak to a common experience that is an unspoken reality for most men.”

– MSP Presenter

It has been exciting to meet other men interested in sharing their stories, being honest with each other, and creating a community of healing for men… I was able to explore the pain I have around my masculinity, discover my own healing process, and then share this process with my community. Being able to share in such a brutally honest and vulnerable way was an effective approach to presenting my experience with the community.

The impact of the project is already tremendous, and we’re just getting started…”

– MSP Presenter

It was SO awesome. It felt totally real, authentic, gripping, valuable and new… I can imagine it easily replicating, with equally (yet different!) great groups putting it on all over the damn place. Inspired idea, brilliantly executed. Really powerful to witness.”

– Audience Member

“Love that your presentations and MSP is deeply rooted in research and empirical evidence as well as emotional response! Can’t wait to participate this year, but REALLY can’t wait for the years of MSP at UO in the years to come.” –Keith Frazee, Assistant Director of Orientation Programs
“As someone working in preventing sexual violence on campus and often feeling hopeless, this idea jazzes me and I am just so excited that it will be happening here…Kudos and thank you.” –U. of O. student
