Sarah Gartshore is the writer and director of the collaborative multi-media show called “Project ArmHer”. It will be performed by people with lived experience in the sex industry and their allies.

Gartshore said rather than “othering” those in the trade, it’s an effort to make sure that insights come straight from the source.

“We believe that sex work is real work,” she said. “It’s hard work. It can be boring, it can be wonderful, it can be mundane, you can dread going to work, you can like going to work — just like any job.”

“Project ArmHer” is happening at the Ernie Checkeris Theatre at Thorneloe University in Sudbury on Sunday, Dec. 17 at 7 p.m. — the same day as the International Day to End Violence against Sex Workers.
