Tonight is the last show at Black Sheep before the great big Dumb Fest, but we do have one other workshop going on tomorrow in the early afternoon, being put on by the fine folks at the Prairie Center Against Sexual Assault who we are happy to be working with. It is going to be a free zine-making workshop of sorts highlighting topics of consent. Here’s the description from the facebook event:
For those of you who have expressed interest in helping with a consent zine, please come to this workshop and help us assemble one! We hope to have them up and ready for distribution by mid-June.
Consent is voluntary, verbal, on-going, retractable, mutual, genuine, enthusiastic, honest, active and SIMPLE!
Our goals with this workshop will be :
*to educate the participants on the basics of consent
*to educate the participants on the uses of zines and how to make them
*to then compile an informative and all inclusive consent zine together!
The zines will be for public use and distribution once they are finished.
PLEASE feel free to bring personal drawings, photographs you have taken, poems, collage materials, stickers, magazines, and anything that could be used to help with the assembly of these zines!
This event will be free of charge and open to everyone! Please note that the topics of discussion may be triggering or upsetting to some people so please plan accordingly. Please feel free to comment in this event discussion with any questions.
We hope to see you there!
