Rupert James Alison
I love to co-create spaces for self-awareness, healing and play through education, creativity and human connection. I’ve been space-holding for groups for 30 years, facilitating consent workshops for 15 years, and facilitating Wheel of Consent workshops for 5 years.
My teaching style recognises that consent is influenced by many factors, including cultural dynamics of power and marginalisation, as well as our personal and collective trauma histories. I’m especially interested in how consent is established in workshop spaces themselves.
Since 2022 I’ve been teaching consent classes for university students, and feel drawn to the urgency and pleasure of co-creating a culture of consent, both as a personal practice, and as a collective endeavour within our different communities.
I’m also a musician, writer, dancer, uncle and part-time scientist. Pronouns he/him. www.artofconsent.co.uk
