Workshop Toolkit

Remember the‘Make It Normal’ workshop we had conducted for school students of class 8 and 11 separately, with the objective of starting a conversation about sex and sexuality?
The success of the workshop and the feedback we received from the students after it helped us make this toolkit. Post the workshop, we iterated the toolkit according to the feedback we received and devised a number of games for catalysing sex education in schools and other teaching scenarios. We put together the activities and and games we played in the workshop in a box, with an instruction booklet to guide the giver of information on the how to conduct the workshop and how to play the various games. The back of all the cards are left blank to customise each game according the socio-economic group the workshop would be conducted for. As the giver best knows the what works for her/his group of receivers!

Shuffle and Deal

Do you remember our GMTs and our affinity map? (see https://shhhsex.wordpress.com/2015/10/27/method-to-madness/)

And our trigger cards? (see https://shhhsex.wordpress.com/2015/10/14/trigger-cards/)

We printed all our GMTN cards and trigger cards, to use them for a second round of ideation. We picked up Goal, Method and Tool cards at random and thought of solutions related to these cards. Different permutations and combinations lead to various kinds of solutions, and in the process more cards got linked to each solution.

Coming up with all our ideas was the easy part. The ride gets bumpy now, when we have to pick the ones we want to take forward (really excited about all the arguments the four of us are going to have). The card games are over, it’s time for battle.
