Consent Culture Project

We have just launched our Consent Culture Project with the aim of collating examples of predatory behaviour and harassment on our screens. We want pop culture to stop normalising these behaviours and to tackle these issues thoughtfully and with an emphasis on consent and reporting.

We need to build a culture of consent and we need to see that represented on our screens. Contribute to our database by submitting your testimony here.BLOC


Humility says, there was someone before me,

Someone found the path, someone made the road, before me.

And I have the responsibility of making the road for someone that is yet to come.
