We have been working on this piece since September 2017 in partnership with the Waterloo Regional Police. We were given the opportunity to create a performance piece in response to the issue of consent, sexual harassment and sexual assault, as it seems like no one wants to talk about this challenging topic. As a class, we agreed that this issue was important to bring to light in our community to allow for education and a better understanding for everyone. An issue of this magnitude often goes unspoken in society, ignorance is not bliss. With this performance we hope to spark a change in our community and culture. If we can educate and help even just one person, than these countless hours of hard work will all be worth it.
If you want to be a part of this change, we invite you to attend our Consent Public Awareness Night that will take place this Friday, January 12, 2018 at 7pm at Southwood S.S. to hear a variety of guest speakers discuss this hot topic, and our final performance.
