Thematic Focus Areas at the AMC
Through an open proposal process in the early fall, we select the thematic focus areas of the following year’s conference. These focus areas take the form of tracks, practice spaces, or network gatherings – each of which are created and facilitated by dedicated groups of coordinators.
A Track is a series of sessions connected by a shared theme.
A Practice Space is a hands-on open studio space dedicated to a creative practice.
A Network Gathering is a day-long mini-conference convened by a local or national network on the Thursday of the AMC.
