International Day Of Consent

30th November is the International Day Of Consent #IDoConsent

2021 – NEWS! We will be working again with Kitty Stryker, founder of consentculture.com to create a focussed online Festival of Consent, a packed few days of provocations, activism, debate, conversation, performance and consensual events. WATCH THIS SPACE – or contact jenny@irregulararts.com if you want to get involved in presenting/producing.

The world’s first International Day of Consent took place on 30th November 2018, as a small gathering and performance event at Theatre in the Mill in Bradford, West Yorkshire, UK.

In 2019, Irregular Arts ran the first Festival of Consent in Leeds, UK, including international artists, panel discussions, workshops, exhibitions and performances exploring consent.

For 2020 we worked with Kitty Stryker, founder of www.consentculture.com and editor of the book “Ask: Building Consent Culture” to create a two-week long online Festival of Consent, with events taking place in USA, UK and elsewhere, and with speakers, educators, performers and academics contributing for an audience across the globe.

We are spearheading this as a campaign and umbrella for raising awareness of consent as a tool for personal and social change.

Irregular Arts is a tiny company, with no full-time staff, but with huge ideas and ambitions. We need your help to change the world.
