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.
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.
ATTN: Detroit teachers! Apply for a year-long initiative to empower young people in our classrooms and communities
We are excited to invite all teachers to apply for one of the most transformative and effective professional development opportunities of a lifetime.
Detroit Future Schools needs innovative, passionate, committed teachers to apply here!
"I want to learn to create, to be visionary, to think differently, to collaborate, to tell stories and to listen really, really well."
Over the past 13 years, the Allied Media Conference has grown and transformed significantly. We describe our work as conference organizers through the metaphor of earthworms cultivating healthy soil. We identify the right balance of nutrients (workshops, strategy sessions, dance parties, etc.) out of which annual cycles of media-based organizing can grow and flourish.
