What’s a GRUE?

GRUE technically stands for “Graydancer’s Ropetastic Unconference Extravaganza”, but the important word in that is “Unconference”. Everything thing that happens is determined by the people attending. What are their passions? What do they want to learn and share?

We use the Open Space principles to create a participant-driven and dynamic event. That means a lot more than rope. Gender issues, D/s dynamics, edge play, erotica, photography, polyamory, electrical play and more have all been part of past GRUEs. You can read more about the process here.

The event will consist of a meet-and-greet Friday night, GRUE sessions all day Saturday (lunch provided), an After-GRUE Saturday night and the famous GRUEcakes on Sunday morning (served by a man in a kilt by the name of Graydancer).

Tickets are on sale now through Brown Paper Tickets! There will be no ticket sales at the door on the day of the event.

The GRUE at the Academy of Fetish Arts is a welcoming and inclusive event for attendees age 19 and up.
