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.

AMP Camp 2014 is August 16 - August 20

Apply for AMP Camp 2014

AMP Camp is a retreat for Detroit-based artist-educators. It will take place Saturday, August 16 through Wednesday, August 20, 2014, at a group of beachside cabins in Silver Lake, MI.

Now in its third year, AMP Camp is like an intense and intimate version of the Allied Media Conference.

This year’s AMP Camp will focus on the theme "Creative Cognition: Understanding one's own creative process in order to understand how to facilitate creativity in others."
