Modern Couples: Make Your Own Relationship Rules

Justin Hancock and Meg-John Barker are here to help you explore the different kinds of relationship models seen in Modern Couples: Art, Intimacy and the Avant-garde.

Explore the different kinds of relationship models seen in our major exhibitions Modern Couples and learn how we might navigate them today. From monogamy, to ethical non-monogamy, to relationship anarchy, and our relationship with ourselves, this friendly and practical workshop will give you tools to help with whatever kind of relationship style might work for you. This lively, interactive and thought-provoking workshop is open to anyone, regardless of previous knowledge and experience.

Dr Meg-John Barker is an author, speaker, consultant and activist-academic. They have written a number of books on the topics of relationships, sex and gender as well as the comic book Queer: A Graphic History.

Justin Hancock is a sex and relationships educator and runs the BishUK sex education website for young people, as well as offering one-to-one consultations. Along with Meg-John, Justin was a co-author of A Practical Guide to Sex, and together they produce The Meg-John and Justin Podcast as well as a series of zines.
