The What Does He Need? public poster project presents a range of viewpoints on the needs of men and boys in different scenarios and at different stages of life. These short texts are responses to the central question ‘What Does He Need?’ and were gathered from conversations with adults and young people. The presentation of contrasting viewpoints is intended to provoke a public dialogue around the subject of masculinity.
The public poster project was launched in December 2020 in the windows of The LAB gallery. For two weeks in May 2021, the posters will be displayed on billboards in three new locations; Saint Mary’s Place (Dublin 1), Church Street (Dublin 7) and Dolphin’s Barn (Dublin 8). These posters include a QR code which links directly to the What Does He Need? audio piece.
