Last month, members of the Committee and assorted partners took place in a We-Consent workshop by the Dublin Rape Crisis Centre. Our experience was generally more positive than not, with a couple of moments that took us by surprise throughout the day. The workshop was facilitated by Dave Dunn and Frankie Nesirky (DRCC), inviting the team to explore what consent means to them, legal definitions of consent, and the broader understanding of consent outside of sexual activities.
The workshops are part of a nation-wide education campaign on consent and what it means, funded by the Department of Justice and the Community Foundation. We encourage community groups and organisations to contact the We-Consent team for more information.
