The Wake Forest campus community (students, faculty and staff) and greater Winston-Salem community. Beyond generating awareness for the event, we wanted to capture the attention of our audience by effectively representing the tenor of what Mr. Coates would be addressing in his remarks, placing it within the timely national conversation of race.
Our primary goal was to promote attendance through awareness and a thought-provoking image. We feel we achieved that goal due to the fact that the event was filled to capacity (with a representative group of faculty, staff, students and members of the community) and required an overflow area to accommodate those who could not fit into the main venue.
