I thought I was all prepared to share the poster that I made about the Show & Tell with the Community Based Research Council Summit in Vancouver today, but then realized that I had missed a crucial detail. While I had submitted and shared my poster in a digital form last week in the online component of the summit, I didn’t realize that having it printed was also on me. Once I did realize this, the cost reality of printing the poster shocked me and left me feeling frustrated and like I needed to just give up.
Rather than doing that, I have just posted the poster here and will be scribbling a link onto the board for people to open on their own devices.
Big motivations for making the yard, hosting the show & tell, and building my work into the shapes it is taking these days include cost saving, accessibility, and what works for me as an often solo parent and caregiver. Finding a way to make this networking opportunity also fit the shape I needed has involved many barriers, and innovating around them. Which, to me, feels like the very essence of how I relate to community based research & education work.
