AMP Blog: Film
The stories we tell about a place form a kind of DNA-- shaping what that place is and what it can become. The Detroit Narrative Agency (DNA) incubates quality and compelling stories with an ecosystem of community members, storytellers, mediamakers, and organizers, that shift the dominant narratives about Detroit towards liberation and justice.

Detroiters will have a chance to interact with several of Allied Media Projects' partners on November 3 and 4 in a weekend-long presentation at the Detroit Public Library-Main Library. The goal of the program is to help cultivate civic engagement through artistic expression.
With place-based, community-accountable principles guiding their mission, the Detroit Narrative Agency isn’t just celebrating this past year’s progress, they’re forging ahead to something even bigger.
We are excited to announce the launch of our Seed Grant Program, which provides 8-12 grants of $5,000-$10,000 each for the creation, research, and development of narrative-shifting moving-image projects and projects that support the infrastructure of a healthy moving-image ecosystem in Detroit.
