Festival of the Erotic Arts

Event date: 
Fri, 22/06/2012 (All day)


The 2012 festival will take place in the city of Edinburgh and will work with a number of the city's historic and modern independent arts venues. The Festival seeks to create a nationwide platform to promote and showcase the work and creativity of erotic artists in all forms, to create a place to view art and performance rarely seen in mainstream galleries or theatre in a unique setting which celebrates the multi-disciplinary nature of the Erotic Arts.

The event launches in Edinburgh, Europe's premier festival city, and features a gallery-based visual art exhibition,  exotic twisted cabaret show,  short film showcase, workshops, erotic ball, talks & readings, an arts and crafts fair and performance art revues.

The event is a sleaze-free, sex-positive celebration of a thriving artform, the first of its kind in Scotland and unique to the UK as a whole.


The Festival is managed by Itsy Live Events, a highly regarded alternative event production firm founded and based in Edinburgh.

Director of the Festival in 2012 is Donna McGrory (aka Dee Itsy). Individual event producers include: The Kitten Has Claws (Edinburgh/Glasgow), Torture Garden Productions (London) & ArtWank Events (London).


The event takes place over the weekend of the 22nd to the 24th of June 2012
