We know that your workplace experiences impact feelings of belonging, wellness, and violence, yet you’re rarely asked about what you need in your workplace. Our research seeks to change that by creating recommendations for design guidelines, support services, and policy for supportive sex workplaces based on your expertise, needs, and desires.


We're going to create these recommendations by doing sensory arts-based activities, making animations, and doing design. 

  • Engaging in arts-based and imaginative design activities (we supply the art materials and tutorials)

  • A time commitment of approximately 18 hours over 3-4 months

  • Research activities will vary in length between 1-3 hours

  • You will receive a $25/hour cash honorarium in recognition of your time and expertise

  • All activities will be done on-line or independently

  • Sharing your voice and ideas about your work and environment

  • Women & Non-Binary Folks

  • 18 years and older

  • Have exchanged sexual services for goods or money during the past two years in Calgary, Canada

This research has been approved by the Conjoint Faculties Research Ethics Board at the University of Calgary

This research is undertaken by Alison Grittner as part of her PhD in the Faculty of Social Work at the University of Calgary. It is supervised by Dr. Christine Walsh, Professor, Faculty of Social Work, University of Calgary.
