Why are you using arts instead of a more traditional approach (like, presentations)?

The North has some very successful sexual health education interventions already. We’ve seen in these workshops that there’s no shortage of knowledge among young men in this age group. We’re trying to go beyond the science and hard facts of sex ed, and open up a dialogue about how this information plays into the day-to-day lives of young men in the North. The arts allow youth to explore real-life situations in ways that give them a bit more freedom and anonymity. It also provides youth with the opportunity to practice articulating their feelings and choices in a no-pressure environment, strengthening their knowledge and skills to do so in real life.
