AMP Blog: Detroit Future Media
Welcome DFM Class of 2013!
Detroit Future Media, a program offered by Allied Media Projects, has launched it's third year of media-based community organizing workshops in Detroit. Fifty-five participants were selected out of dozens of applications to develop Major Media Projects that will investigate a problem or set of problems, explore holistic solutions and foster transformative relationships in the process.
On Saturday Dec. 1, 2012 the Detroit Digital Justice Coalition (DDJC) and Detroit Future programs will celebrate two years of building a digital justice movement in Detroit. The Detroit Future celebration will mark the close of our Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) grant and will include a community report-back on how these federal funds were spent to benefit Detroit.
Allied Media Projects recently completed its first ever Detroit Future Media (DFM) Apprenticeship Program, partnering eight digital media artists with local businesses and community organizations for a Summer-long knowledge exchange. The program provided a critical link between the classroom experiences of Detroit Future Media workshops and real-world application in Detroit's emerging media economy.
Congratulations to director Rola Nashef and the cast and crew of Detroit Unleaded on the world premiere of the feature film at the Toronto International Film Festival last weekend.
Allied Media Projects staff and program participants were involved at various points in the production and promotion of this film.
