AMP News: Detroit Future Media
The glue that holds the incredibly diverse content of the Allied Media Conference together is media-based organizing. Media-based organizing is any collaborative process that uses media, art, or technology to address the roots of problems and advances holistic solutions towards a more just and creative world.
Turning points are moments when you don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay where you are. Figuring out the next best move is a kind of improvisational dance – requiring much agility and willingness to be vulnerable, while stepping into the unknown.
Here at Allied Media Projects, we’ve arrived at 2014, having navigated many turning points over the past year with grace, thanks to the deep commitment to figuring-out hard questions on the part of our incredible staff.
Earlier this Summer, Detroit Future Media graduated its third class of "Detroit Futurists" – Detroiters who are committed to using media and technology for a more just, creative, and collaborative city.
AMP recently completed its first full-length Digital Stewards program, a 20-week community technology training designed and implemented in partnership with the Open Technology Institute (OTI) of the New America Foundation.
