This year at DrupalCon, the Drupal Diversity & Inclusion Working Group will have a booth in the exhibit hall. We plan to have a fun and engaging activity for visitors, which will involve taking their photo and printing it out with an imposed filter that says “This is what a Drupalist looks like!” or similar. We plan to hang these photos as a collage behind our booth, post them to instagram (drupaldiversity), and offer a copy to each visitor. We want to show how diverse the Drupal community is with a fun and striking visual.
We are a volunteer organization, so we rely on donations to fund this activity. The cost of the printer is $162, and can be used in the future. The film) is about $12.49 for 20 photos. Our goal at DrupalCon is to have at least 200 visitors participate each day that the exhibit hall is open. That’s 600 visitors, and if we offer them a printout, we would need 1200 photos, at a cost of approximately $750. With the cost of the printer, our total cost is about $912. We can’t do this without your support.
Our mission is important, and we are dedicated to engaging the community at DrupalCon this year. Your in-kind donation can be made via a purchase at this convenient Amazon wishlist, and, while not tax-deductible, is very much appreciated. We ask that any in-kind donations are placed by April 15.
