The English Collective of Prostitutes (ECP) is approached daily by students, researchers, playwrights, photographers, trainee journalists, etc. for help with their projects and to learn more about sex work and the ECP. We are glad to help and over the years have had input into many a PhD, project, academic presentation and theatre piece. We often find it productive and in some cases we form long standing working relationships.
But inevitably this work puts a strain on our limited resources as a grassroots organisation which relies on volunteers to do much of its work.
So instead of people coming to meet us one-by-one, we are now running workshops for small groups which consist of a short presentation by a couple of our members followed by a Q&A session where people can ask questions to get input from us into your particular project.
We charge £25 per person for this but if your university or college is helping cover the cost or you are getting funding for your research we ask that you please consider a further donation of £50 as a contribution to our crucial service and campaigning work. Please send us confirmation of your Paypal payment to book your place / confirm your attendance.
If you cannot afford £25 please let us know.
The workshop can be audio taped but not filmed/ photographed.
For the time being, workshops are being held online and are less frequent than usual.
For upcoming dates, drop us an email to email@example.com with the subject line “student workshops”. Please include a short paragraph about your research / project and we’ll be in touch shortly.
