Project ArmHer is a multi-year, multi-media, multidisciplinary project with SWANS (Sex Workers Advisory Network Sudbury), a collective of women with lived experience in sex work and their allies.
The project aims to create a safe space in which women can creatively share their experiences and raise awareness on issues of stigmatization, violence, and lack of protection for people working in the sex work industry. The visual and theatrical work is based on the experiences of women working in the sex industry and created and performed by them and their allies.
The creative and support team is: Sarah Gartshore, Playwright; Cait Mitchell, Documentarian and Media Artist; Sarah King Gold, Lead Artist and Multidisciplinary Artist; Tracy Gregory, SWANS’ Founder; and Lanna Moon, SWANS’ Peer Development Coordinator.
Funding for this work was provided by It’s Never Okay: Ontario’s Action Plan to Stop Sexual Violence and Harassment.
