Upcoming Event: NOD – The Art Of Motorcycle Maintenance

This one is for the gents. The first ever of its kind. It doesn’t matter whether you ride or don’t, whether you own a motorcycle or not, NOD is an engaging storytelling event geared towards the fellas, the okes and the lads.

Too often, our focus and attention remain captured by the grandeur of motorcycles. It is a burning passion and an undying love that no one can take away from us. Too seldom, do we uncover the story behind the man in the helmet. Unlike our fellow man behind the wheel, none can dispute the halo of mystery and mystique every rider wears underneath that helmet.

A mystery that comes encapsulated by a plethora of stories, compiled and collected over years and years spanning the precise distance of the open road.

That’s exactly what NOD is about. That’s exactly what Room 206 intends to pioneer. A means to an end to get in touch with real stories, from real individuals who have experienced real-life situations, told as raw and as sure as the men themselves. The sort of stories that remind us that we are, in the end, living beings with very real feelings and emotions. Stories that remind us, that we are not alone in experiencing the unspoken pressures that we as men face in the reality of modern-day society.

The storytellers that have been announced thus far are Daniel Bungay, Thabang Khatide and Natasha Fracchiolla. Daniel, aka “Viking”, is an exceptional thought leader who’s set on impacting people’s lives through thoughtful pattern shifts and unearthing our internal dialogues. Thabang, a polymath of note, from riding to writing and a whole lot more but most notably now, an ambassador for the country having placed as a Top 3 Mr South Africa finalist who has taken a stand to champion the men’s mental health conversation far and wide. Natasha, the founder of Room 206, is an impactful businesswoman and leading storyteller who is a firm believer in the sheer power of the written word not only for healing but for transformation.
