100 Drummond Street, Carlton, VIC
Drummond Street Services and the iHeal program are hosting a FREE three-part workshop facilitated by Undercurrent Victoria. These workshops aim to create a comfortable and supportive environment for participants to talk about issues relevant to queer, trans, and gender diverse experiences of relationship violence, healing and recovery. We will talk about relationships, consent, communication, frameworks for understanding our experiences, and ways that we can support ourselves and each other.
The event is FREE, however spaces are limited, so be sure to register.
Who is Undercurrent?
Undercurrent is a non-profit organisation based in Melbourne’s West that develops and facilitates engaging discussion-based workshops about healthy relationships, family violence, gender and sexuality, support and accountability and consent and communication. Undercurrent is informed by transformative justice and intersectional feminism, and by an analysis of the particular ways violence occurs in LGBTIQ+ relationships. Undercurrent’s programs prioritise support for people who have or are experiencing violence.
