The Sex Workers’ Art Show is now accepting submissions for our third annual national tour!
The Sex Workers' Art Show is an eye-popping evening of visual and performance art created by people who work in the sex industry to dispel the myth that we are anything short of artists, innovators, and geniuses! The cabaret-style event includes music, spoken word, dance, and all other imaginable performance art; it also includes a small visual art display that travels with the tour. The artwork and performances offer a wide range of perspectives on sex work. The show hopes through its diversity of viewpoints to move beyond "positive" and "negative" into a fuller portrayal of the complicated ways sex workers experience our jobs and our lives.

This year's tour is happening mid-Feb. 2005 thru mid-March 2005. We’ll be starting in Portland, going down the west coast, across the south, and up the east coast. Venues will be varied, from small bars and clubs to large theaters to college campuses. We'll be travelling in two new vans, and staying mostly in hotels with a handful of stays at peoples' homes. There will be eight performers, a technical director, and road crew along. It's a low-budget deal; pay will be a guaranteed $2000/performer for the whole tour; plus hotels, transportation to the first show and home from the last, and occasional meals. We will also provide staff to sell your books, cd’s buttons, whatever.
