Please join us for this exciting workshop on the topic of Consent in Digital Sexual Cultures. Involving guests and speakers from charities, activists, academics and sector professionals, the day will focus on solving the challenges faced by the sector. Active participation is expected from attendees.

The aim of this workshop is to provide a space for stakeholders working on issues related to consent in digital sexual cultures to come together to collectively unpick some of the main challenges that they face in and through this work. Another key aim of the workshop is to reflect on these challenges together, and to formulate some recommendations in the form of actionable steps that those working with adults in this area can draw on as they provide them with support and guidance. The main output from the workshop will be a report.

With this workshop, the goal is to foreground the crucial work conducted by charities working with adults on concerns related to consent in digital sexual cultures. The workshop will commence with short presentations by participating charities about their work. After that, we will engage in small group-based workshop activities to collectively unpick some issues and concerns related to consent in digital sexual cultures. These workshop activities will be grounded in points raised by the participating charities and as raised with Rikke Amundsen by all stakeholders before the workshop.

If you would like to attend please complete the Expression of Interest form and Dr Amundsen will be in touch with you to confirm if you have successfully reserved a space on the workshop. Please note that a space is only confirmed once you have received an email from Rikke Amundsen confirming this.

The workshop will be followed by a drinks reception 16:00 - 18:00.
