6 July 2013: A Conversation on Feminist Consent, Collaboration and Consensus
This event was a chance for interested artists, activists and researchers to come together and deepen the conversations initiated by the Consentsus project. What is consent? What is consensus? And what connects sexual and democratic consent? We begun by rating and discussing a collection of quotes on consent, going on to discuss Consensus in Dutch politics, consent vs. dissent in activist movements, and the role of ambivalence in democratic and sexual consent. Highlights from the discussion below.
