Men's Shed

Joel Hedegaard is leading a project on Men’s Sheds, a phenomenon originating in Australia and New Zealand. Men’s sheds are organisations of older men who regularly meet around different activities, such as carpentry. Hedegaard has, among other things, interviewed the participants’ partners, both in Australia and New Zealand, as well as in Denmark, where the concept has now spread.
