A Chrysalis Year

We are taking a one year break from producing the AMC. The conference returns in 2020.

The AMC has been a phenomenal caterpillar, hungry and growing for two decades, but what is the butterfly that we can become? We think it will take a year in chrysalis to figure it out. This will be a year of reflection, deep-dive evaluation, research, and development – a year that includes your voice – as we plan for the return of the AMC.

Take the AMC2014 Reflections Survey!

Thank you AMC participants! The exchange of ideas, skills, and energy over the past four days has been electric. At Allied Media Projects, we are left feeling tired yet inspired and grateful for all the magic you brought to AMC2014.

The Detroit Future Media Guide to Digital Literacy

The Detroit Future Media Guide to Digital Literacy is out! This beautifully designed guide presents reflections and resources from three years of media-based organizing for community revitalization through the Detroit Future Media program.

The 72-page guidebook introduces the concept of "digital literacy" and its role in community revitalization. It provides a history of the Detroit Future Media program and its impact, core ideas, program structure, and curriculum samples for you to use and adapt.
