What you’ll do

Drop in and join artist and researcher Jessie McLaughlin for creative activities exploring consent in relation to our bodies and our desires.

If you come along between 12.00 and 13.00, the focus of the discussion will be pleasure and care for our bodies, and you will be joined by writer, curator, pleasure activist and artist Ama Josephine Budge.
