I'd say so. The text is so tiny you'll be lucky if you can read it, nevermind someone looking over your shoulder.

Yeah, I really don't like the design of the site, or that all the text is a jpg.

What am I missing? All I could see was a few photos, plus a lot of schedule and contact info. Was there art somewhere?

They look as though they're having fun, mind.

I didn't explore the site but from the splash page it looks like a great thing. Especially if it's not shy about presenting both sides of the industry, the sunny and the dim.

I'm not sure whether I think it matters whether the art is any good or not. It would help, I guess.

and a little closer to home, there's . . .
Hidden Heroes: Women Survivors of Violence Art Exhibition

Coordinated by the BC/Yukon Transition House Society

[does this make canada more earnest or more depressing?]

anyway, they're looking for venues, if anybody's interested. Contact info on the site.

I don't see why they're obligated to present the "sunny and the dim" sides of the industry. In fact, I'm not sure they're obligated to present any viewpoint about the industry. It's an art show by sex workers, not a philosophical debate about whether it's a nice job or not.

Did I say anyone was obligated to do anything? I'm just saying that personally, I'm glad that there's a balance. That it's not all harrowing and not all glossy.

If it WAS all one way or the other, it could still be very worthwhile but I'd personally feel like it was serving an agenda.

Which it is not obligated not to do.

I'm just a person with a reaction, that's all.

This looks much more interesting than that Art Worker's Sex Show that I saw in Camden a few years ago.
