ACAS Photovoice Exhibition: Through the lens of consent
March 26, 2019 / 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The project goal is to empower Asian women to create change in their daily lives on sexual harassment and assault prevention by using the concept of Consent. In the past months, Asian Community AIDS Services Women’s Program created the space for 25 Asian women newcomers and immigrants in Toronto to have conversations about consent. The project objectives are threefold; 1) increase knowledge on consent and respect when it comes to sexual relationship; 2) increase communication skills to encourage people to have sometimes difficult conversations about consent with their peers and partners; and 3) reduce the culture of victim-blaming of the Asian communities in Ontario.
Our participants are currently in the the penultimate stage of the photovoice project of taking photographs on the theme of consent. In collaboration with University of Toronto’s WGSI, we are organizing the photo exhibition which is the final stage of the photovoice project. We will be exhibiting 20 – 30 photographs and statements on each artist’s exploration of consent and/or non-consent.
