Join The Erotic Arts Project for a communal art exhibition showcasing work that emerged through Expressive Erotic Play, a creative erotic embodiment practice created by River Frey Drosera. This experiment was an opportunity for six participants who identify as queer, non-binary, women, and femme to explore how eroticism and embodiment impacts creativity with the support and coaching of a skilled Somatic Sex Educator. This exhibition marks the launch of The Erotic Arts Project as a local resource for queer, trans, non-binary, and woman identified folx who feel called to learn more about their boundaries, bodies, eroticism, creativity, and relationship to the natural world.
