About this Event

In this 90-minute class you will discover 10 ways to create Brave Space for yourself and others in the rehearsal spaces yet to come. While we are on a massive "time out" this class will engage your thought processes around how to be aware of your own boundaries and consent practice while keeping an eye out for others in the room.

Intimacy Coordinators of Color is dedicated to making brave space for inclusivity in the new field of intimacy work. We do not condone examining any intimacy rehearsal work without supervision from an experienced professional.
