A poster advertising AANM’s Anti-Ableist Workshop Launch. The main image, in the centre, is the headshots of three women: Patricia Bovey (sporting short white hair, red-rimmed glasses, and a cheeky smile), Diane Driedger (she has long wavey blonde hair, a blue blazer, and a serious, professional smile), and Jenel Shaw (backlit so that a golden light frames her long straight hair; she has a cheerful, carefree smile.) The lower portion of the poster provides details in plain black font: “At this event, AANM  will discuss why anti-ableism education, advocacy, and action is crucial in the art world.
