AMP Blog: AMP Camp
As Winter descends on Detroit, we’re excited to share this video of AMP Camp 2014, a transformative Summer retreat for Detroit artist-educators.
AMP Camp is a retreat for Detroit-based artist-educators. It will take place Saturday, August 16 through Wednesday, August 20, 2014, at a group of beachside cabins in Silver Lake, MI.
Now in its third year, AMP Camp is like an intense and intimate version of the Allied Media Conference.
This year’s AMP Camp will focus on the theme "Creative Cognition: Understanding one's own creative process in order to understand how to facilitate creativity in others."
Allied Media Projects has developed a practice of giving a "Unicorn Appreciation Award" at the end of the year to honor the valuable contributions of staff members. The 2013 Unicorn is Diana J. Nucera.
Now in its second year, Allied Media Project's Detroit Future Schools program is growing a network of teachers, artists and students who are committed to transforming the purpose and practice of education in Detroit. Essential to the formation of this network is a 5-day intensive training called AMP Camp, which prepares teachers and artists to enter the school year with a shared vision and purpose.
