INTERVIEW | Digital Stewards Represent Detroit at the International Summit for Community Wireless in Berlin
In early October 2013, while the U.S. government’s shutdown and Detroit’s municipal bankruptcy filing were making international headlines, a delegation of four Detroiters shared their innovations in neighborhood-based communications infrastructure at the International Summit for Community Wireless in Berlin.
Allied Media Projects Co-Director Jeanette Lee will present on Tuesday at the Council on Foundations Annual Conference on the topic of "Models for Broadband Adoption and Use."
Last Saturday, we hosted an event celebrating two years of building a digital justice movement in Detroit through our two-year federal Broadband Technology Opportunities Fund grant. The Detroit Future Celebration was attended by more than 150 and featured a community report-back back followed by a DiscoTech (Discovering Technology) fair.
Check out below our report-back slideshow video, "Prezi" media showcase, and AMP Co-Director Jenny Lee's opening remarks from the event.
Last week Allied Media Projects Co-Director Jenny Lee presented at Representing the City: Technology Action and Change at Rutgers University, alongside Victoria Goff and Lottie Spady of East Michigan Environmental Action Council (EMEAC). This critical exploration of power and process in the collection and ownership of data was hosted by Rutgers' Bloustein School of Public Policy.
Allied Media Projects staff have presented at the last two South By Southwest Interactive conferences and we are hoping to return this year.
