Image description: At the very top of the event poster, light turquoise text reads “CCOL presents Hello Boyfriend” against a black banner background. Below that, the poster features two horizontal panels, one smaller above and a longer panel below, with pastel pink and purple and white shapes in the background. In the smaller panel above, the word “Collaboration!” is written in bold turquoise shades, and a group of friends are collaboratively drawing in unity on the ground below these letters, sharing two large pieces of paper and drawing, surrounded by art supplies. The cartoon friends are drawn in different colours, from left to right, they are: red, orange, purple, and turquoise. In the larger panel below, the bold turquoise letters now spell “C-collaboration?!” and the cartoon friends appear to no longer be in unity; the red character is napping in a sleeping bag, the purple character is pushing the orange character away, and their glasses fall off their face, and the turquoise character is concentrating on their own page. Chips fly in the background and the scene is more chaotic. At the bottom of the poster, the text reads, “An online panel Sat, August 21st @6:30 p.m. EST, beside the Toronto Arts Council logo. In the bottom right corner of the poster, there is a pastel yellow rectangle, and the text inside is formatted in a list and reads, “-A slideshow! -Hot Goss (maybe) -Exclusive top-secret new project reveal!” followed by the zoom link!
