Radio CKUT 90.3 FM and the 2110 Centre for Gender Advocacy, are providing an opportunity for community groups to come together and share different perspectives of gendered violence and how to address it.
Previously known as the Blue Print Project, the Dragonroot Project workshop series will offer creative and informative workshops every 2nd Wednesday (Nov 7 – April 10) from 6-8 PM at the 2110 Centre.
The lecture/workshop series on gendered violence at the 2110 Centre for Gender is open to the public. Please spread the word and encourage your communities to attend! If possible, it would be amazing if you could include information on the Dragonroot workshop series in your newsletters and listservs.
The workshops are listed here: http://www.facebook.com/events/359664507461248/ and here: http://www.centre2110.org/events/the-dragonroot-project-a-workshop-series-on-gendered-violence/. Please see attached promo materials.
The first workshop is on November 7th and will be facilitated by the 2110 Sexual Assault Centre Campaign. This workshop is designed to provide a basic understanding of sexual assault, including consent, boundaries, and rape culture. We will explore the right of people to define their own experiences. We will delve into why consent can be complicated, the importance of communicating comfort levels, and what resources are available within Montreal for survivors. That’s Wednesday November 7th at 6pm at 1500 de Maisonneuve West (suite 404). This space is wheelchair accessible. Hope to see you there!
