Image description for poster by SeaWolfRise:

The poster has a black background and white line drawings and text that contains the same event details as the event web page. In a mutual aid outer space, a bath chair floats in the centre and is surrounded by 4 stars connected by celestial lines. Along these lines it reads, “take what you need.” Access tools and supports float in a tender tough galaxy of care (cane, crutches, pill bottles, tinctures, knives, spoons, lube, braces, gloves, gaff, binder, bus tickets, money, dental dams, condoms, hand sanitizer, cookies, strawberries, a crystal pendulum reading “sick,” and other adornments and protections.) Forming a constellation of needs with the shower chair, some items are also connected and surrounded by stars and celestial lines. Moon phases border the top and bottom of the page.
