About the event

A Festival supporting the struggle for Sex Workers’ Rights: share knowledge, discuss, dance and strategise!

Sex Worker Open University, in partnership with SCOT PEP, Umbrella Lane and ARIKA are inviting sex workers and allies to come together, share knowledge, discuss, debate, dance and strategise on how to protect and support sex workers' rights!

The 4 days of events will include workshops for sex workers only to develop skills to advocate more powerfully for our rights as well as public events open to all such as the seminar day, film festival and party. All bringing awareness to the issues faced by sex workers and building alliances with other progressive movements.


All events will be free or by 'Pay What You Can' donation. Some events ask you to register with Eventbrite - see individual events for details.
