Huffington Post: AMC "as much an experiment in social organizing as it is a conference on media and technology"

Jun 29, 2012

The Huffington Post reports on the AMC.

Excerpt:

Hundreds of people from across the country began arriving in Detroit on Thursday to participate in an event that is as much an experiment in social organizing as it is a conference on media and technology. The Allied Media Conference (AMC), now in its 14th year, brings together artists, technologists, educators, activists and others for the goal of developing "media strategies for a more just and creative world."

The gathering has its roots in the small press and underground publishing world, beginning in Bowling Green, Ohio as the Midwest 'Zine Conference in 1999. Organizers began to branch out into other forms of media when it relocated to Detroit six years ago. They also began experimenting with a more participatory model of running a conference. It's now divided into 22 separate tracks, organized by a total of 60 coordinators and a trio of directors from a group called Allied Media Projects.
