There we said it. Sex. It’s natural and completely normal, but people often find ourselves shying away from the subject when it’s mentioned. So to help offer you information about sexual health and consent and to give you body confidence, we will be running various events and activities during this Thursday 05 and Friday 06 May.

Here’s what you can look forward to:


Thursday 05 May

THE BODY POSITIVE EXHIBITION

  • 09:00-17:00
  • Concourse, Building 42, Students’ Union

The Body Positive is a free exhibition of photography that aims to promote body positivity, confidence and challenge negative portrayals of the human body that we see perpetuated by the media.

The exhibition features the work of international photographers Jade Beall, founder of A Beautiful Body Project, Gracie Hagen, Wrenna Robertson and Whelm King.

Please note that this exhibition contains nudity.

CARAVAN THEATRE PERFORMANCE OF ‘CAN’T TOUCH THIS’

  • 11:30-15:00
  • Red Brick Area by Building 42, Students’ Union

Caravan Theatre will be performing their free, solar-powered 10 minute play, ‘Can’t Touch This’ , written by Cassie Catchpole.

Described as a ‘short, sharp look into late night life and what it takes to say no’, the show looks set to be a good one!
