Men’s Shed Week is the annual opportunity to collectively showcase Men’s Sheds to the world.
Men’s Shed Week 2018 Theme – Celebrating Mateship
First and foremost a Men’s Shed is a place to knock around with a group of mates. The shed is a place for friendship and for a sense of purpose; a place to belong and contribute.
Men’s Shed Week 2018 aims to highlight the mateship and comradery found within a Men’s Shed, and across the Men’s Shed movement.
One hundred years ago the end of WWI embedded mateship into the fabric of Australian culture, so a century later we are recognising that this spirit still lives on in many ways across the Men’s Shed communities through stories of shedders as they stand shoulder to shoulder around the world.
