The Dictionary Of Joy & Pleasure is a free, interactive online resource that offers a compendium of possibilities for YOU to experience joy, pleasure and other awesome feelings. We awarded commissions to 10 brilliant artist-activists to create their own lists from A-Z of things that give them JOY and PLEASURE. When we launch the Dictionary in September 2021, you’ll be able to click on any letter of the alphabet to be transported to a galaxy of possibilities!
