The RhED art project has been focused on providing an opportunity for sex workers to share their voices through art to enhance the human and worker’s rights of sex workers.
The project forms part of the advocacy strategy to decriminalise sex work in Victoria.
The art project has provided 26 art workshops so far in various locations around Melbourne. There are currently 34 sex workers who have participated in art workshops, since it commenced in March 2016.
The people involved in the project are Tamara Desiatov, Community Art Facilitator; RhED Health Educator Kima O’Donnell is the project coordinator, and a range of current and former sex workers working in a variety of settings. A Public Art Exhibition is planned for the end of the project.
