Every summer, media-makers and movement builders convene for four days of media-based organizing at the annual Allied Media Conference (AMC) in Detroit. These artists, activists, and technologists come together to develop strategies for transformative social change through hands-on workshops, strategy sessions, presentations and performances.

AMC Presenter Guidelines

The AMC is a uniquely designed conference that relies upon the collective brilliance of it's network to build the content of the annual event, and to continuously evolve the way in which the AMC is organized. Last year, we created the How We Organize the AMC zine, which focused on the process behind the production of the Tracks, Practice Spaces, and Network Gatherings of the AMC.

Our new AMC Presenter Guidelines mini-zine builds upon this by offering 10 tips for presenters of Allied Media Conference sessions.
