By the time you finish reading this paragraph, you will likely have received at least two other digital communications via Facebook, Twitter, email, text message, voicemail, etc.  Recent studies indicate that Americans spend more time interacting with digital screens and monitors and less time invested in face-to-face communication.  To raise awareness about this phenomenon and to create a greater sense of community, you are invited to join TNCC students, faculty and staff for a special “unplugged” performance to be held Monday, April 25, 2011, from 4:00 – 6:00 PM in the Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium.

The event will feature poetry readings, a capella and acoustic musical performances unaided by the use of electronic devices.  The event titled, “BE HERE NOW”, has been proposed and planned by TNCC journalism students and faculty concerned with the growing dependence upon digital media for both formal and informal interpersonal communication.
