Towards a Culture of Consent

Consent culture is defined as one in which consent—and respect for individual autonomy— is considered paramount. But what would that look like? How do we go about creating a culture of individuality within the context of a nurturing community?

In this workshop we will examine:
– “Rape Culture” and “Dominance Culture”
– What Consent Culture would look like
– Specific ways we can, both individually and collectively, work to create cultures of consent.

This two-hour workshop aims to dive into a deeper understanding of consent culture; explore some of the more subtle ways that current cultural norms detract from it; and collectively brainstorm how each of us can work consent into our daily lives.
