Shifting Perspectives

  • Dr. Foster James Penny Building (map)

This workshop is facilitated by Shift Calgary

"Shift provides support services to adults currently and formerly working in the sex industry to improve their quality of life and achieve individualized goals."

"Shift has a harm reduction and rights based approach to sex work. This means that the safety and human rights of sex workers are our focus. We recognize that sex work is a choice for many in the industry, and we respect the rights of adults to make this choice. We also recognize that not everyone has active choice in sex work. For some, outside forces such as poverty or exploitation can force people into situations where they don’t have control. Shift’s services will meet you where you are at – whether you want to stay in the industry, get out of the industry, or anything in-between." 

This workshop focuses on shifting perspectives, highlighting and unlearning stigma and harm reduction

This workshop is held at The Penny Building upstairs in room PB200. This location is wheelchair accessible by elevator. There will be vegetarian and vegan snack food and non-alcoholic drinks provided by Bavaru Catering
