18th October: FB LIVE CHAT, Naked Farmer!

We have a VERY exciting guest for October's Infobus: 

 

Ben Brooksby, aka The Naked Farmer! 

Join us on the 18th of October at 7pm AEDT 

 

 

 

 

For the first time ever, we will hosting this event as a Live Chat on Facebook, between myself, and Ben! 

This way you get to see the faces, hear the voices, and interact! 

This is our first time doing this, so we are excited to learn and see how it goes. 


You will be able to ask questions , and be able to interact in real time, while we are chatting. 

 

So who is this Naked Farmer and why is he nude??? 

His name is Ben, and he has decided to do something to tackle the stigma surrounding mental health! 

Ben reckons that "it takes guts to get your gear off as it takes guts to talk about mental health."

Specifically, mental health issues in rural areas, and in the farming industry are the focus of his work - with hopes to increase awareness and access to services. 
To do this, Ben is collecting photos of farmers who have the guts to get their kit off, and using them to create a calendar!  Check out his website here . He also has an awesome collection of photos on the gram, and on facebook
  

Please keep to the guidelines.

Don't forget to tune in!

 

Submit your questions here to be asked on the night! They could be about Ben, his work, this project, mental health, farming... whatever!
