|Students at Mixed Media event|
So far, we have had considerable success with the exhibits, providing large numbers of people with opportunities to enjoy poetry, music, visually-stimulating posters, and writings about black history and culture at a single event. Given that people rely on multiple intelligences or have different preferences for processing information, we have discovered that presenting attendees with a variety of modes to participate is important.
The exhibits are a result of multiple engagements with technological productions especially our audio mixes and graphic design. We also regularly utilize our listening devices at mixed media exhibits.
At a given event, some visitors prefer the music. Others favor the recorded poetry. Some are into the visuals, and still others are most interested in the writings. So much depends upon a mixed media exhibit.
