13th Annual Allied Media Conference (2011)

The 13th annual Allied Media Conference brought over 1,800 people together in Detroit to push the boundaries of what media can be and how it can be used to transform our lives and our world. More Detroiters participated in the AMC this year than ever before, as representatives of the Detroit Future network, an emerging city-wide movement. This year also marked the first Healing Justice Practice Space, which has returned to the AMC every year since.
