The organizers of the AMC2014 "Sound Track" have organized simultaneous benefit events in Detroit and Washington D.C. for this Saturday, April 5.
The "Sound Track" is a series of workshops at the AMC that will explore "how music and sound shapes our perception of each other, how we listen to each other, and how we think about the future."
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.
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.
On Friday, we welcomed AMC participants back to the conference and to Detroit. In a wall-to-wall packed Community Arts Auditorium, we framed the local context, celebrated 15 years of the AMC, experienced powerful poetry and dance performance, and concluded with a movement-based exploration of emergence theory that started as a human wave that became a ripple, then a hustle, then a dance party.
