The Spit it Out Festival
Edinburgh-based, women-run consent and mental health charity ‘Spit It Out’ comes back with a new lineup for their second festival. An impressive programme of 48 events in 13 venues across Glasgow, Edinburgh and online, The Spit it Out Festival is an immersive arts festival focusing on creative ways to talk about sex, mental health and healing. Expect exhibitions, workshops, talks, film screenings, live performances and parties, all held in a supportive, safe and inclusive space.
Spit it Out was founded in 2019, after Bee Asha and Lea Luiz de Oliveira together made a BBC Scotland commissioned documentary by the same name which explores recovery from sexual trauma through the power of spoken word and live performance.
The charity is run by a very small team of women from different backgrounds, recovering from trauma and mental illnesses, who wanted a change, came together and created this community. The charity is committed to providing a space for education, open discussion and support on often taboo subjects which can lead to trauma: consent, sex educations, racism, LGBTQIA+ rights; mental illnesses and body image.
