Brave spaces and consent culture

b current's new administration is committed to weaving this policy and bill of rights into the everyday culture of our company. This does not mean we know everything. This does not mean we won't make mistakes. This means we are bravely considering ways to be progressive. This means a lifelong dedication to centring safety. 

With this in mind, b current has gathered a collective dedicated to creating brave spaces and building consent culture. In partnership with incredible individual artists and organizations such as Why Not Theatre, Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, Theatre Passe Muraille and Dauntless City Theatre, we have authored the following Bill of Rights. 

Policy

As an organization funded in part by the Toronto Arts Council, we adhere to The City of Toronto Human Rights and Anti-Harassment Policy. 

Our staff and our Board of Directors will work every day to consider how to incorporate this policy and our Bill of Rights into the everyday culture of our company. We know this will mean a lifetime of learning and training on our part and we are dedicated to envisioning and building Consent Culture at b current. 

Policy in action

We also recognize that policies are only effective if people build a culture of understanding and action behind them. Pair this policy with a Building Consent Culture workshop with our B Inc coordinator, Rania.
