Need a break? Come join us at the Consent Café on November 21st 2022 from 6:30pm-8pm for a relaxing and creative evening with friends.
The Consent Café will feature free warm drinks, baked goods and Blackout Poetry.
What is blackout poetry?
Blackout poetry has been popularized in the recent years by a struggling American writer, Austin Kleon, who decided to create new pieces of work out of newspaper. This form of art encourages people to create poems by selecting words from ‘ordinary’ text, such as newspaper, books, articles. Like any other creative project does, blackout poetry allows you to discover more about yourself.
At our Consent Café you will get a chance to try blackout poetry keeping consent, sex and body positivity in mind. For those who wish to, you will also be given the opportunity to share your piece, slam-poetry style. If you’ve never tried it before this event is a great place to start! No experience required and all of the supplies will be provided. We also have prizes to give away for lucky guests. Can’t wait to see all of you there!
