AMP Blog: Allied Media Projects
To our beautiful community,
In 2019, you were a part of the most significant growth in our organization’s history.
At the intersection of Grand River Ave. and 15th Street in Detroit’s Core City neighborhood, there is a four-story brick building covered in murals. The most prominent one, spanning the top half of the front facade, is of four hands shaping the letters L-O-V-E. For nearly 20 years, this building was a home for artists and small businesses. Through low-cost studio space, gallery space, and community, it nurtured a kind of creative love, the impact of which is visible along Grand River, and will be felt for many more decades.
Allied Media Projects cultivates media strategies for a more just, creative and collaborative world. We serve a network of media makers, artists, educators, and technologists working for social justice. Our work is grounded in Detroit and connected to places across the globe.
In our story-centered communications strategy, we aim to amplify voices within this network; hold space online and offline for innovative storytelling; and shift dominant narratives through our engagement with new, radical, and traditional forms of communicating with the world.
