Campus Consent Champions

In 2023, The Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention and Response Programme Coordinator, in collaboration with the Active* Consent programme initiated the recruitment of our inaugural cohort of Campus Consent Champions at the University of Galway. These exceptional individuals played a pivotal role in contributing to positive change on our campus. Equipped with specialized training in consent & digital intimacy workshop facilitation, they actively conducted numerous workshops and informative stalls, contributing significantly to our ongoing commitment to fostering a culture of consent and awareness.

Campus Consent Champion - Workshops

Peer-to-peer education holds significant importance, particularly in discussions surrounding consent. Our dedicated champions took the initiative to conduct workshops for fellow students, contributing to the establishment of a consenting campus culture at the University of Galway. These workshops covered crucial topics such as consent and digital intimacy, fostering a comprehensive understanding of respectful and responsible behavior among our student community.

Promotional Stalls

With a keen interest in cultivating a positive consent culture on campus, our champions hosted diverse information and promotional stalls at various events on campus. These stalls not only served as informative hubs but also provided a safe space for students to learn about consent and relevant initiatives from their peers. Additionally, students had the opportunity to actively contribute to activities such as "the green flag" initiative, further enriching their engagement with the promotion of consent awareness on our campus.consent stall

Active* Artists

In Spring 2024, Active* Consent and the University of Galway's Sexual Violence and Harassment Prevention and Response Program Coordinator collaborated on the “Active* Artists” project to recruit a group of passionate students at the University of Galway who merge their love for art with their commitment to campus consent culture.

An open call was made to students with an interest in art to help devise and create a mural to promote consent on campus. The plan was to create a stunning mural that will serve as a powerful reminder to our campus community about the importance of consent. The energy and enthusiasm the talented artists brought to the project was truly inspiring.

The project consisted of multiple workshops. Participants were guided through the process of devising a mural while learning more about using art for social change and consent culture change.

Students got involved for various reasons:

  • To be part of making a beautiful mural on campus!
  • To learn more about creative consent communication and art for social change
  • To try out a range of art skills and materials
  • To meet and make new friends
