Not just another festival

May 19, 2012

All festivals are the same right?  They are all becoming more generic, homogenised and packaged for easy consumption?

Well maybe not.  Starting next weekend in Melbourne is a festival with a difference.

Saturday May 26 – Saturday June 2

VIXEN (Victorian Sex Industry Network) is organising the Festival Of Sex Work,
to be held in Melbourne at the end of May, 2012.

It will consist of art displays, spoken word nights, parties, workshops/skillshares,
and whatever you want to contribute – our only limit is our imagination!

Some events will be sex-worker only, and some will be open to the public.

The Calendar of Public Events looks interesting.  The highlights appear to be:

Sunday, 27th of May – Sex Work In Melbourne:A Historical Walking Tour
Tuesday, 29th of May – Ask A Sex Worker A Question: A Public Forum
Thursday, 31st of May – Scarlet Road: A Screening and Q&A
Saturday, 2nd of June – Red Umbrella Rally

I hope to attend the Historical Walking Tour at the very least.
It promises to be a mind opening event.
I hope to see many other open minded and progressive people there!
And don’t forget to spread the word – Like the Festival of Sex Work on Facebook
