Community meeting/workshop schedule

On Wednesday at 2:30 PM ET, folks from the IDRC, Fluid community, and others gather together to learn and discussion various topics. The community workshops provide us an opportunity for engaging with a broader community to spur our creative processes with topics that may align with our projects, be tangential to, or challenge our ideas and notions by providing alternative perspectives. It also provides us with the opportunity to make connections between our work and the work of those in the broader community.

To join the conversation please come to the IDRC office in Toronto or remotely through our Vidyo conference in the fluid_standup room. You may need to install the Vidyo app on your computer or portable device before joining.
