Over February and March, we supported our community and youth sector friends in Love Bites training across the Hunter. Love Bites is an evidence and school based domestic and family violence, sexual assault and consent awareness education program, targeted at Year 10 student.
Held at Kurri Kurri High School, Dungog High School and Maitland High School, the respectful relationships programs consist of two interactive education workshops; one relationship violence and one on sex and relationships, followed by create workshops that consolidate the information taught in the earlier sessions.
This is where we came in – through our creative sessions, students have the opportunity to use their artistic talents to encapsulate the key messages of respectful and healthy relationships and showcase their work through recording a hip hop track or creating artworks.
Kurri Kurri High School created a hip hop track that challenged gender stereotypes, attitudes, values and social institutions that perpetuate male violence against women. Check out their track & video here!
