We were very glad to have Dr. Marcia Dawkins and Marcus Shepard join us for a program they called Mix Mesh Blend: How Diversity, Tech & Creative Storytelling Are Changing Everything. What did you think of the program? We want to share your insights! Tweet us your thoughts with hashtag #mixedremixed. –Heidi Durrow, Festival Founder
Mix Mesh Blend: How Diversity, Tech, & Creative Storytelling Are Changing Everything offers a innovative perspective on how today’s blending technologies are updating tomorrow’s mixed identities. Offering four ways that changing demographics and emerging technologies are contributing to our future selves, MESH — Mix, Education, Share, Help – develops a deeper understanding of a story through supplementary context and sensory experiences, allows consumers to become part of the narrative and possibly influence its outcome, have a seamless connection among all platforms being used and goes beyond just replicating content on different devices. Our MESHed perspective will tell you exactly how to share strategies for blurring barriers between story, content, and lived reality with a layered yet cohesive execution.
