14th Annual Allied Media Conference (2012)

At AMC2012 we designed new structures of conference content to hold and nurture the growing networks that convene at the AMC. In addition to Tracks, AMC2012 featured Network Gatherings, Practice Spaces and Delegations. We also introduced the Safety Team, which has become an invaluable resource for AMCers in need of crisis support and counseling. The Detroit Digital Stewards installed a "MagicNet" community wireless network at the conference - which we continue to re-install every year to this day.
