AMP Blog: AMC2014
In the months since the 16th annual Allied Media Conference, we’ve spent many hours going over feedback from participants, coordinators, and volunteers provided to us through the AMC2014 Reflections Survey and other debrief conversations. This feedback from our network is one of the main tools we use when planning for the evolution of the AMC from year to year.
AMC2014 was four beautiful days in June: learning, building, exploring, and dancing in Detroit. But parallel to that universe another Allied Media Conference was taking place… on the Internet.
What is the AMC?
"Allied Media Conference: Create / Connect / Transform" is our new video offering an answer to that question. It features footage shot at AMC2014 and interviews with conference organizers and participants.
At the closing ceremony of AMC2014, Detroit water rights activist Lila Cabbil called on AMC attendees to "wage love" for a just water system in Detroit. She invited us to use our media-making and our networks to help bring an end to the tens of thousands of water shutoffs taking place throughout the city.
"It's ok to feel beautiful in the process of creating justice," Sterling Toles remarked during the Opening Ceremony of the 16th annual AMC.
The Allied Media Conference is an intersections of many things: communications strategies and practices, issues and campaigns, and organizing networks. Above all, it is a community of incredible humans.
Our photo collection from AMC2014 captures the many shining faces of our network.
