– What happens when the doctor needs to do things you wouldn’t even let your partner do?
– How do you fill out an application for access support when form filling is what makes you sick?
– Have you really got to laugh or else you’ll cry?
– What box do you tick when there is no box for someone like you?
– Who gets to make decisions when you can’t?
– Have you decided when to pull the plug?

Disconsented explored these themes with artists for whom these challenges occur almost daily: FR Kesby, Chris Cambell and Jenn Wilson. This was a co-production with Subjective Silhouettes and with thanks to Bradford Libraries.

Navigating Consent Webinar – A deeper dive into how we navigate consent, in this free one-off online session Jenn Wilson shared ideas to help you:

  • Stop saying ‘yes’ to things you don’t really want
  • Connect more meaningfully with the people that matter to you
  • Question what is ‘expected’ of you and choose your own ways of being 
  • Decide what actions you want to take in order to make a real difference
