Caste in a box: Silencing higher education poverty-class EDI policies

Designed this research poster and presented it an Education department open house at the University of Alberta on March 31, 2016.

The poster presentation was interactive and made visible stereotypes that academics have towards people from poverty. In order to leave their thoughts on a sticky notes, which were placed around the poster, they had to reach into a muddied paper bag and retrieve a felt pen. Inside the bag was crumpled up kleenex. Individuals put their hand in the bag and quickly jerked it out, assuming the kleenex was used.
