Training VI: Say YES to Consent
Discussions, presentations, and practical exercises on the art of consent
The sixth training as part of Trainings for the Not-Yet is with Laced-Up Project, and takes place on Thursday 10 October 2019. The training consists of discussions, presentations, and practical exercises on the art of consent.
The topic of consent has emerged strongly into public awareness thanks to the #metoo and other feminist movements. As consent has gained fresh prominence, it has perhaps moved away from a “no means no” to a “yes means yes” model. However, it is still unclear for many people how to constructively incorporate active consent into daily life, with fear that it will involve endless, business-like negotiations. But there are ways of doing so that are both practical and fun. This training explores and applies consent theory, and engages in discussions and practical exercises aimed at figuring out what works for the individual participants’ needs. Even with consent, there is no such thing as the right way; but there is a right way for you-in both your private and public lives.
