Take part in Answers Back – our young people’s panel event
Inspired by the themes of female rivalry and public image in Mary Stuart, a panel of young people aged 15-25 discuss the trend of ‘slut shaming’ - when women are publically shamed for their perceived sexual identity or activity. Led by the Almeida Young Producers, the discussion is an opportunity for an open and honest exploration on the topic. They will explore why it happens, how it affects young people today and what needs to happen to make a change.
Want to join the panel? Please send us a short video (2-3 minutes) of yourself including the following information:
Your name, age and a little bit about yourself
What do you think 'slut shaming' is?
Does it affect you or anyone you know
What causes it?
How can we change it?
To be a part of the panel you will need to be free for a workshop during the week beginning Monday 9 January (exact time and date TBC).
Answers Back will take place on Thursday 19 January between 4 - 6pm.
