Read the KISSTORY case study, animationsand digital story for ideas on how to create a workshop or activity around consent to support this DIY activity.
1: Watch one or more of the KISSTORY animations and discuss potential storylines in groups or pairs.
2: Individually or in pairs, select one of the seven comic strips or a blank comic strip.
3: Look at the first page which sets out the story line frame by frame. Taking each frame in turn, talk about what might be happening. Who are the characters? Will they have names? What are they thinking? How might they be feeling?
4: Using the thought and speech bubbles, make your own story about how consent matters to the characters in the comic strip.
5: Colour in the characters using the feelings cloud colour palette.
6: When you’ve finished your comic, why not film or screenshot each page so others can view and read. Or choose another comic, or a blank comic book.
7: You could create a soundscape, with dialogue for one of the moving animations. What story do you want to tell about how consent matters for positive relationships?
