What is ClearLines?

2017 will see the conversation continued and bring together a new programme of artists, creatives, activists, professionals, media and the public to talk about Sexual Assault and consent and where we are now. How has the narrative changed?

This builds on the 2015 event, where for 4 days in July/August, comedians, performers, journalists, writers, visual artists, cartoonists, psychologists, activists, therapists, and the public came together in a vibrant, funny, very human exploration of themes around sexual abuse, sexual violence, and consent. You can see an example of one of the sessions below and watch more on our film page here.
