The University of Calgary Consent Awareness and Sexual Education Club is curating a creative exhibition on campus in the winter semester entitled Consent is a Conversation. We are looking for a vast array of creative entries: paintings, photos, videos, theatre sketches, music, dance, sculptures, spoken word, written entries – you name it.
We are looking for submissions from people from every walk of life – different genders, ages, orientations, ethnicities, etc. You do not have to be an “artist” to submit an entry; we think every voice is important. Your entry can be about any kind of consent – it does not need to be about sex – so children are welcome to enter.
Consent is defined as: permission for something to happen or agreement to do something. In your entry you can explore:
• What is consent?
• What does consent look like?
• How do you feel when consent is not asked for or not respected? (I.e. when someone does something without your permission)
• What would a world where consent is asked for and respected look like?
Deadline has been extended to January 20, 2014.
