Suitable for ages 18+

We can censor, content warn, or hide them behind a velvet curtain, but no matter what we choose, erotic and pornographic content will remain a part of our society. This workshop will discuss and interrogate how the more risqué items of a zine (or any) collection can be handled, maintained and accessible. Participants will get “handsy” with real examples and lively discussions about how to fit these items into their collection.

This workshop is for people who are sex positive and pro-porn.

About the facilitator:

Erika Silverman, based in Glasgow, has incorporated sexual history and attitudes into her art and research. She has recently trained as an intimacy coordinator and currently finishing up her PhD focusing on internet pornography sites.


There will be 20 attendees maximum, and the event will feature comfort breaks. During this event, attendees will participate in: small group discussions, hands-on activities

This event will take place at the Centre for Contemporary Arts on Sauchiehall Street. For information about venue accessibility at the CCA please visit their website.
