On November 10 at 5pm at Palácio Anjos, Isabel Freire leads the workshop “Controversial Conversation – The Consent”.
This workshop consists of a debate session on consent and issues such as sexual and gender violence, portrayed in the exhibition Amor Veneris – Journey to Female Sexual Pleasure, which will start from a true story about a couple of teenage lovers.
The objectives of this workshop are to reflect on sexual rights, identify social gender expectations in matters of sexuality, encourage dialogue about boundaries in affective and sexual interaction, identify forms of sexual violence (physical and psychological) in relationships, think about and discuss expressions of consent and raise awareness of sexual violence as a crime.
