MATES in Construction have partnered with the AFL Players and Coaches association on a project around supporting men who are doing it tough.

As part of the project, known as the STRIDE project, the team had decided to film six short interviews, three with construction workers and three with AFL players and coaches.

Today Luke Gibson was filmed as part of the project.

We would like to thank Luke for being such a fine candidate for the filming.  We also want to thank Brookfield Multiplex – the Casino Towers site for letting us film on site and interview workers during the day.

The aim of the short films will be to help to reduce sigma on constructions sites and amongst men generally.

Thanks also to Movember for providing the funding for this project.

It is anticipated that the final clips for the project will be launched in July this year.
