O-DAYS! Student Union Consent Workshop

Thursday, September 6, 2018 - 3:30pm to 5:00pm

"Let's talk sex, love, dirty talk, desire, intimacy, rejection, and consent!
Join Ignite Gallery and BAD SUBJECT for a free activities-based workshop providing practical tools to understand consent. This workshop is presented from an anti-oppression and intersectional perspective and is facilitated by a volunteer from BAD SUBJECT.

BAD SUBJECT is a youth-led, grassroots, non-profit group that offers interactive, non-hierarchical, intersectional workshops designed by-youth-for-youth on “Consent” and “Media Literacy: Spotlight on Rape Culture”.

Changing rape culture into consent culture...one workshop at a time!

ABOUT IGNITE GALLERY:
The OCAD University Ignite Gallery, located at 165 Augusta Avenue, represents the current creative voice of all OCAD U students through exhibitions, events and community programs.

ABOUT BAD SUBJECT:
We are an educational initiative that offers activities-based workshops on Consent and relevant topics to youth, educators, and professionals.

We work from an intersectional, anti-oppressive, trauma-informed framework that humanizes both the survivor and the perpetrator.

We are all in this together. We want to change rape culture into consent culture.
