AMC Advisory Board

The AMC Advisory Board is made up of ten inter-generational, long-time AMC participants. Together, we are exploring some of the larger questions of scale, complexity, intersectionality and community cultivation. The Advisory Board will review TPSNG (tracks, practice spaces, and network gatherings) and session proposals, and facilitate content at the AMC.

“The AMC is a political home for me that evolves each year, yet feels familiar. I am honored and excited to be part of the 2018 conference, and to see how this cycle nurtures, interrogates, and changes me.”

“Each AMC reveals new and exciting mutations of our collective and solo selves, our visions, our hacks, the moves we make to connect, collaborate and hacer puentes al andar, como nos dijo Gloria. This year I feel our ancestors rooting for us más que nunca, and I hope to slow down enough to listen to them, to move through and sit with grief, to channel life-generating creativity, and to catch each other's' breath when that collective rítmo is conjured, and there's the chance to come undone a little bit together.”

“The AMC is the world we're all working and fighting so hard to create, and each year we get to experience it with each other, it's amazing. I'm SO EXCITED for our AMC to turn 20, and us all to get to learn, grow, imagine, recharge, get inspired, and celebrate together! :)”

“The AMC is a family reunion, a constellation of unknown galaxies, where we are repeatedly transformed to grow our humanity and imaginations. Each AMC is a big bang for new frameworks, possibilities, and skills; a culmination of collaborative brilliance which emerged since the last spark.”
