The Human Sexuality Community Workshop (HumSexComm) is an intensive 12 week workshop for folks 18 years and older that aims to create a respectful and open environment for participants to validate their experiences, challenge their ideas, and learn with and from others.
Evolving from the student-led courses at UC Berkeley and Brown University, and the experimental FemSexComm out of San Francisco; HumSexComm seeks to bring the values of empowerment, diversity, and allyship to a space outside of the university and city settings.
HumSexComm encourages exploration of identities, boundaries, desires, experiences, power, and privilege through the lens of sexuality. This work will be done through group discussions, activities, and individual exercises. The facilitator will guide participants to develop informed relationships with themselves and to build ally relationships with others. HumSexComm promotes intentionality, agency, informed decision-making, and consent in all areas of life.
The Fall 2019 HumSexComm Workshop will start on September 4, 2019 and meet every Wednesday through November 20, 2019 from 6pm to 8:30pm.
These sessions are to inform potential participants about HumSexComm. At each information session you will have the chance to meet the facilitators of HumSexComm and learn more about the why of HumSexComm. In addition, you will have the opportunity to look over the syllabus, ask questions, and fill out an application.
