Creating a culture of consent

 

Wednesday, September 9, 2015 - 4:00am

First-year OCAD University students received something new in their Welcome Packets this September: Create Consent, a ‘zine that aims to create consent culture in a way that centres anti-oppression and intersectionality.

Developed at a two-day student workshop facilitated by OCAD U faculty Sheila Sampath and led by OCAD U’s Sexual Violence Prevention & Awareness Working Group, the 30-page ‘zine is a student resource that examines issues of sexual consent in classrooms and studios, on-line and in our communities. It offers information on where to go for support in cases of sexual violence and marks the beginning of a series of initiatives to continue this dialogue.    

The ‘zines are available around campus and at the Office of Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives at 115 McCaul.

At the Student Gallery, the grassroots non-profit organization Bad Subject facilitated a workshop called “Let’s talk consent!” Participants engaged in role-playing activities to develop practical tools to gain and understand consent.

Find out more about sexual violence resources available on- and off-campus.
