Cracks in the Curriculum: Sex Re-Education

Free, booking required

Are you hot-blooded about sexual consent? Quite concerned about the influence of pornography on perceptions of sex / gender / class / race? Frustrated by the lack of sex education in schools? Bedfellows want YOU to join us inside this mess.

Using pop imagery, pornography, music videos, drawings, art history, newspapers, and contemporary artist videos, Bedfellows sought to flatten the hierarchy; mashing up highbrow and lowbrow to discuss current forms of sex education and imagine alternatives.

Bedfellows is a sex education research project led by artists Chloe Cooper, Phoebe Davies and Jenny Moore and born from the personal, the political, and the professional investigating sex, sexual identity and feminist porn.

Cracks in the Curriculum aims to bring artists and educators together to discuss ways of bringing pressing social issues into the classroom.

The workshop is devised for anyone who works with children or young people and wants to join an active discussion about sex education in schools. Materials, resources and refreshments are provided free of charge.
