The SNAP! festival is organised by Art Whore Connection, a team of engaged, activist and artist sex workers.
In partnership with UTSOPI.
SNAP — Sex workers Narratives Arts & Politics — is a festival entirely dedicated to the discourses, representations and issues related to sex work.
SNAP programming includes:
It is activities related to the creation of sexually explicit images (sexcam, porn), sexual services (escorting, prostitution, BDSM), but also more broadly any type of economical-sexual continuum involving the body and affects in exchange of money or material support.
They are transgender and cisgender women and men, students, casual workers, migrants, LGBTQI+ people, mothers, people who live with disabilities, people in your family or in your circle of friends, though you may not know it. Sex work is at the intersection of major theoretical and political issues, as well as at the core of reflections on what can be represented, on the ways in which we use our bodies, on relationships to work, to sexuality, to class, to gender.
Beyond the sensationalism usually associated with this type of subject, SNAP is dedicated to exploring sex work and the experiences of those who work in it in accordance with the following ethical principle:
Nothing About Us Without Us
SNAP is a festival open to all.
