Consent Event Symposium
- Nightwood Theatre
- Oct 15 - Oct 15, 2017
- RSVP for Free Tickets
- 1:00PM - 4:00PM
Presented in conjunction with our Consent Event Series: Asking for It, by Ellie Moon, and Lo (or Dear Mr. Wells), by Rose Napoli, Crow's and Nightwood are thrilled to expand the conversation beyond the walls of the theatre to discuss issues of consent, desire and sexuality in a gathering of experts and community in the Consent Event Symposium on October 15 from 1:00-4:00pm at Streetcar Crowsnest.
In a world where children and youth are exposed to sexual content via media and cellphones – and incidents of sexual assault and rape in social situations and on campus are all too prevalent, we need to have discussions around what constitutes consent and healthy sexual relationships. How do we speak to women and girls, men and boys about these issues?
Facilitated by Catherine Hernandez, and featuring a diverse group of experts and activists, the Symposium will engage participants with two panels – Get Consent and Sex Talk – along with a candid conversation with Consent Event playwrights Ellie Moon of Asking for It and Rose Napoli of Lo (or Dear Mr. Wells).
