30th November is the International Day Of Consent #IDoConsent
2021 – NEWS! We will be launching a brand new IDoConsent podcast series for the International Day of Consent this year, a series of conversations to explore how we can practice consent in different spaces, places, and situations. Guests will include USA-based Kitty Stryker, co-producer of last year’s online Festival of Consent, activist and consent educator; plus a range of other experts by experience, educators, academics, citizens and artists who are passionate about consent culture. WATCH THIS SPACE – or contact Jenny Wilson if you want to get involved in presenting/producing.
The world’s first International Day of Consent took place on 30th November 2018, as a small gathering and performance event at Theatre in the Mill in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK.
For 2020 we worked with Kitty Stryker, founder of http://www.consentculture.com and editor of the book “Ask: Building Consent Culture” to create a two-week long online Festival of Consent, with events taking place in USA, UK and elsewhere, and with speakers, educators, performers and academics contributing for an audience across the globe.
We are spearheading this as a campaign and umbrella for raising awareness of consent as a tool for personal and social change.
Irregular Arts is a tiny company, with no full-time staff, but with huge ideas and ambitions. We need your help to change the world.
