Consent Dojo 18: Jason Wyman
For this 18th edition of the Consent Dojo, Midori is joined by fabulous SF Artist Jason Wyman. Join them as they dive into the ethics and practices of asking an audience to participate in the act of art-making.
Over a decade ago, Wyman and Midori met at The News, a monthly queer performance series hosted by Kolmel with Love at SOMArts Cultural Center. Both of their performances inverted the relationship between artist and audience, and a deep art friendship ensued. With dozens more participatory art projects including Shadows of Violence, Echoes of Healing (2016) at Artist Television Accession, #StickyQuestions (2017) with Celi Tamayo-Lee and Mary Claire Amable for the Asian Art Museum, and Be Jason (2018) at Black & White Projects by Rhiannon Evans MacFadyen.
Topics will include…
- How do you get an audience to create with you?
- What does consent in performance look like?
- When & How is consent crucial for the experience to be healing rather than traumatic?
This is bound to be a deeply personal and insightful conversation between two dear artist-comrades, who both value the art of consent.
**Bring your curiosity and questions for Q + A after the conversation!**
Style: Conversation + Q&A
Props: Bring note-taking tools
Duration: 60-90 minutes
Consent Dojo is always free.
Join us Live on Zoom followed by Q & A or watch the replays on YouTube.

My name is Jason Wyman, and I am an Anti-Binary Queer Artist conjuring Cosmic Mysteries through introspection & engagement, inquiry & deep listening, divination & revelation. I use design, illustration, poetry, performance, and media-making as inspiration to create services, merchandise, and experiences that help Queerdos & their comrades affirm, celebrate, and honor our fabulously unique beliefs, bodies, and beings. I strive to contribute to a sustainable, artful, intergenerational, and hope-filled world where our ancestors, elders, siblings, and children are thriving. My home, which physically resides in San Francisco / Yelamu, appears virtually anywhere and everywhere.
Consent Dojo is an ongoing project created by Midori where she sits down with a special guest to discuss different aspects of consent, how communication can affect and enhance our relationships, and how consent transcends the interpersonal world and builds more resilient communities and organizations.
